Collaborative Schools Project
As co-ordinating author for this project I've been out and about visiting the eight schools involved and it's been heaps of fun. Everyone was so enthusiastic, which was wonderful to see. The gr4/5/6 providing the words and the K/1/2/3/ providing the drawings. Then when it was all said and done Dave Jones has animated the kids pictures together with the narration. The final project was unveiled for the very first time at the WATM launch. Lowesdale kicked off with a great 'seed' and Table Top & Walla Walla developed some crazy adventures. Read more & see the kids hard at work in 'Seed Story' .....

Thankyou so much to the the Friends of the Corryong Library and everyone involved for the privilege of Guest speaking at your annual awards night. It was wonderful to see the level of writing that was been produced from 12yrs to, let's just say, over 50's. It was a wonderful evening and those short-listed were well deserved.
