Anthony McGowan – A visit from a real author!


On Friday 13th November, children’s author Anthony McGowan visited years 3, 4, 5 and 6. In the run up to Anthony’s visit all the children had been reading his books, so there was great excitement when he arrived. Every class had come up with thoughtful questions to ask him, about how he writes a book, where he gets his ideas from and how he creates characters. In Years 3 and 4, the classes were treated to a detailed description of the initiation ceremony into the Bare Bum Gang, while in Years 5 and 6 they found out all about his ‘Adventure’ series of books, as well as the murky world of Brock and Pike. At the end of the day, Anthony said that he’ ‘never been to a school who were so enthusiastic about all of his books and reading in general.’ Great stuff!
