Tuesday was way too much fun at Hurstville South Primary School. Congratulations and heaps of thanks to Linda Blake the teacher librarian (so valuable are teacher librarians) for undertaking such a splendid day. Linda had organised for her years 3-to 6 students and 15 students each from Connells Point, Bald Face, Blakehurst, Beverly Hills, Oatley, Oatley West, and Peakhurst schools to gather. That was terrific seeing the local schools joining in the celebrations too. And it was brilliant being able to present at the day with my lovely friends Sarah Davis and Deb Abela. It’s a huge task organsing days like this so congrats multiple times to Linda and all the Hurstville Crew.
We were chatting to the primary students about inspirations ideas and specifically for me about taking facts to then create fiction. I was in the kindergarten assembly hall and so those classes had to close the doors as I was a little loud – which happens with a telling or two of Sounds Spooky!!
Over lunch I discovered the library walls and it was just wonderful to hear the stories and the buzz that the students and staff had discovering Python. The pics below are part of the wall display! Excellent.
More Python Work
After our sessions we three camped in the larger assembly hall signing books. That took ages! Linda had also organised a book fair to run featuring our books of course, while we were there so it was just super signing multiple copies of my books! Another clever idea – a raffle for our books was on during our signing.
More on the Carolinas later but Pam Vaughan (official photographer for the New England conference last weekend) has just sent me oodles and poodles of photos … so if you don’t want to see piccies of me in action – then look away now! There are photos of me with friends, of me panelling, photos […]
