Julia Lawrinson: The Flyaway Girls: What If You’re Not the Best at the Thing You Love?

Session Info:

Children throw their hearts and souls into doing what they love, whether it is sport, music, collecting things, reading. But if they love doing something competitive, or something that takes a lot of time and effort, what happens if they are not ‘the best’? What if they want to be the best, but somebody beats them there?

There will be some audience participation, where students act out parts of the novel.

Topics:
  • Passion and obsessiveness
  • Friendship
  • Ways of dealing with disappointment
  • Ways of dealing with conflict
  • Healthy competition
