Brisbane Writers' Festival

​On Thursday 4 September, Mrs Austin accompanied eight Years 4 and 5 students to the Brisbane Writers’ Festival.  They took a bus to the Cultural Centre and then attended three presentations at the State Library of Queensland.  At the first session the students met author, Hilary Badger.  The second session was hosted by Jackie French (the Australian Children’s Laureate for 2014-15).  At the final session the group met Damon Young and Peter Carnavas (author and illustrator of ‘My Nana is a Ninja’).  The authors gave the students lots of tips regarding writing.
