10 of our students attended a Speed Date event where the students interacted and listened to NZ authors who shared tricks of their trade. One of the key messages was that if you aspire to lead a particular career path or uptake a particular skill, you can.
Donavon Bixley NZ author, who visited our school also, showed the students how to use people to gain the perspective of what things looked like. In the photo Tilly is looking up at the giant. By setting the scene the children could understand how better to describe the characters.
This photo shows the skills of Donavan as an illustrator.
