Bulloo Shire Council - May 2018Bulloo Shire Council - May 2018Speakers Ink
We recently held a Literature & Arts Festival at St. Catherine's Catholic College, The Whitsundays for our Secondary students. All the authors that attended were entertaining, engaging and inspiring. I have had so much positive feedback from students, staff and library colleagues. The students have all been raving about how excellent the festival was, and they were disappointed at the thought of returning to classes for the rest of the week. I have had reluctant readers coming into the library to borrow books, more students are writing stories. I would definitely recommend David Burton, Josh Donellan, Kathy Hoopmann, James Moloney, Giulio Saggin, and Edwina Shaw to anyone looking at having authors present for their Secondary students.
I spoke with Sandie Fraser regarding all communication with Speakers Ink. Sandie went above and beyond to answer any and all or my requests or questions. Nothing was too much trouble. Sandie offered guidance and suggestions as to who would be suitable for our Secondary students, and WOW was Sandie ever right! Our students, staff and Community members were entertained, engaged and inspired.
