Our Year 8 students had the benefit of working with author Cath Crowley to develop their writing skills. In her fun and inspirational sessions, Cath guided students through activities that encouraged them to be playful with their language, generate lists of ideas for writing and develop characters and settings. Year 8 students are currently writing their own short stories, so Cath’s sessions have been great preparation for this task.
Throughout the term, Year 7 students have been studying the novel ‘The Four Seasons of Lucy McKenzie’ by acclaimed author Kirsty Murray. The girls were very excited to meet the author of their class novel and hear some of the stories that Kirsty shared that had provided the inspiration for her novel. The session ended with a book signing and the chance for girls to ask Kirsty questions about her novel and writing.
