Author Scott Gardner will be visiting the Guthridge Campus on the 17th of August to talk to students about his books and writing.Scott Gardner became a writer after a chance meeting with a magazine editor while hitchhiking in eastern Australia. Magazine articles led to op-ed newspaper pieces and eventually novels. His many books have found local and international favour and garnered praise and awards for their honest take on adolescent life. They include books like White Ute Dreaming, Burning Eddy and most recently Happy as Larry, winner of a WA Premier's Book Award for young adult fiction, and The Dead I Know, winner of the CBCA Book of the Year Award for Older Readers. Scot lives with his wife and some chickens in country Victoria.
Recently Mrs. McPadden and her Year 8 English students hosted Grade 2 students from Guthridge Primary in the OLC. Year 8 had written & illustrated picture story books and invited the Grade 2’s to be their audience. The Grade 2’s gave valuable feedback to our Year 8 authors, whilst the Year 8 students built their confidence in oral presentations. It was a wonderful learning experience for all.
It's not too late to complete the Premier's Reading Challenge – 15 books by the end of August. Checkout all the fabulous new tles in the OLC. The July holidays are the perfect me to escape with a good book ...or two ...or three!
