Author M. G. Leonard talks to Year 7 students

We were delighted to welcome M. G. Leonard, author of The Battle of the Beetles trilogy to school. M. G. (Maya) started the day with an exciting talk to all the Year 7s about how she had became fascinated by beetles in the course of writing her books. She also ran a creative writing workshop for 30 Year 8 and 9 students in which she shared her ‘special story recipe’ for developing great stories and characters. The students were challenged to write a short story based on a beetle character, which will be judged by Ms Bovington, the school librarian.
