Eight of our budding authors and avid readers from 6th class enjoyed a very special event this week.
On the ‘Hogwarts-esque’ site at ICMS, the Children’s Book Council of Australia hosted an amazing day for students from 20 different schools from around the Northern Beaches. The students were seated for lunch with Australian author Kate Forsyth and had the opportunity to meet and talk with 20 other authors and illustrators.
We were treated to a keynote address from author Tim Harris who spoke about his writing inspirations and participated in an illustration workshop lead by Matt Cosgrove.
The girls declared it was the best event they had been to all year!!
