Funded by ARTS NSW. ConnectEd Arts Outreach Project.In conjunction with the: Write Around The Murray Festival 

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' .....
