I'm sure all schools and libraries have had a wonderful start to the New Year and activities are settling into a rhythm.
Bookings have been rolling in, so if you are planning a special event for CBCA Book Week, or any other week of the year, please be sure to contact our office via a website enquiry, email or phone call (all contact details are on our website).
Each year Speakers Ink also looks into ways to support new talent and add variety to our stable and this year was no exception. As such be sure to check out our full list of speakers - we added quite a few new members to our family towards the end of 2018 and over the holiday period.

"Simon Higgins helped us kick off a week long celebration of learning as part of Catholic Week activities at Jubilee Primary.
Students from Year 3 to 6 participated in talks and workshops throughout the day and the overwhelming feedback was positive. Reluctant writers actively engaged in Simon's writing workshop and the students were captivated by his stories and Martial Arts demonstration. Simon was flexible in his delivery and could tailor his talk to reflect the differing age of students."
