Book Week Dragon

Book Week Dragon

Well how wonderful was Book Week – especially the day I spent with Chatswood Primary School and their fantastic Teacher Librarian Ali Webster. Thank you to the two primary stages that I was able to spend time with … so thrilled I am that I was able to chat to you all. We sure did […]

A Few Days Break

A Few Days Break

Hey – this teaching gig is intense with classes from 9-12 each morning and sometimes another presentation thrown in, and I did three of those this week so I most definitely DESERVE a long weekend. Which is why Friday morning we tripped off to Salisbury Zoo. This is a quaint little zoo – volunteer run – and nothing […]

BIH @ Plunkett St

BIH @ Plunkett St

What a grand time I had at Plunkett Street School last week presenting books for the Books In Homes crew. As a Role Model I pop in to a few schools that are on the programme and chat about my favourite subject – ME -and reading of course. Sometimes I read a book chosen by the kids. Sometimes I […]

I just love reciting the story, which is then followed […]

What fun! He asked me to talk about my favourite subject – ME! How hard is that? I spoke to […]

Ahlcon School hello!

What a wonderful school. The students and teachers must have really wanted to see me because this was a Saturday […]

Off to the Mountains

Off to the Mountains

Thursday morning found us at Delhi airport – this time to fly to Dehradun. Time for more school visits. We were told that most people wouldn’t fly for such a short time (less than an hour) but the plane was full. You should drive (that would endure too much queasiness for sure) or you should […]
