Year 6 Writing Extension Excursion

Primary School Monday, 03 Oct 2022

On 15 September, our Year 6 Writing Extension group travelled to Subiaco Arts Centre to attend The Scribblers Festival. This event consisted of authors, illustrators and storytellers from across Perth, Australia, and around the world.

Our students delighted in sessions from Julia Lawrinson, Deb Fitzpatrick and Amie Kaufman who covered a wide range of subjects and generated excitement around the writing process.
