As lockdowns remain in place around much of the country, our speakers are continuing to deliver fabulous online sessions, bringing joy to kids during these otherwise unusual times. ⁣

Here is just some of the glowing feedback we’ve received, which we think speaks for itself!

AILSA WILD – Penleigh and Essendon Grammar, August 2021⁣
‘Our Prep – Year 6 students responded with great enthusiasm to Ailsa Wild’s visit. Ailsa adapted our author visit to an online format and it couldn’t have been better. She got the students moving and they jointly began constructing a story which many have written their own endings, or written a new story inspired by her ideas. Ailsa was a fabulous and inspiring guest speaker.⁣’

DAVINA BELL – St Thomas the Apostle, August 2021⁣
‘The Prep to Two classes had a wonderful time and were engaged and captivated from the moment Davina spoke. The students loved the writing ideas and how she incorporates life experiences into her stories. It was interesting to hear the step by step process it takes to write books. Although it was an online session the students were still able to participate and enjoy the love for books and the celebrations that come with Book Week. Thank you Davina for sharing your passion for writing and books.⁣’

NAT AMOORE – St Andrew’s Cathedral School, August 2021 ⁣
‘Nat was absolutely fantastic! The kids LOVED her. We were limited to a digital experience and Nat managed to jump right through our screens. Cannot recommend her highly enough.⁣’

JACK HEATH – Haileybury, August 2021⁣
‘Jack was able to back up four sessions in a row with high energy. The teachers really loved some of his writing tips too, especially when he spoke about editing your writing. Students enjoyed the mini workshop element Jack brought to the second half of his talk… it was interactive and used zoom chat function so all were involved.⁣’

Our speakers can do online sessions regardless of whether your students are in a virtual classroom or a real one. To book a speaker for Term 4, call us at (03) 9824 0177 or send an email to
