Newcastle Writers Festival

Today the OC attended the Newcastle Writers Festival at the Newcastle Library. We participated in a gifted and talented writer’s workshop with author Gerry Bobsien, where students took part in a variety of creative writing exercises (I will publish these on the blog next week). We also met some other authors from the festival including Tristan Bancks and Aaron Blabey, who spoke with students and did personal book signings.

We were also lucky enough to be photographed for an article in the Newcastle Herald, so make sure you pick up a copy tomorrow.

Well done OC! Terrific behaviour and inspiring writing. I am looking forward to sharing some of our exemplary examples on our blog next week.

Easter Hat Parade


It’s that time of year again for our annual Easter Hat Parade! All are welcome to attend next Thursday 10th April. Lunch begins at 12.30pm with a delicious sausage sizzle by our P&C. The celebrations begin at 1.30 under the COLA with our parade, student performances and the Monster Egg Raffle. Tickets are being sold each morning at the silver seats and all donations of eggs for the raffle can be taken to the office.

Looking forward to seeing everyone in their amazing hats next week!
