17th May 2019 – GSIS School Visit
What a pleasure it was to present to Years 4, 5 & 6 at GSIS. It was a truly special experience for me as both my boys have been/are GSIS students.
The week of the 13th of May was book week at GSIS and I was fortunate enough to be presenting on the Friday when the children were dressed up as their favourite book characters. In a span of three hours I met over 150 exceptionally bright and enthusiastic children, and there were plenty of questions. By the time I weaved my way through corridors with school bags and children, from one class to the other, time was up.
I would like to thank all the teachers for their warm welcome, tech support and their coordination. It was surreal to see Mr Benson after all this time as he taught my son’s year when he first started in primary 8 years ago.
I was particularly happy to meet a young boy, Thomas, who came and introduced himself, and said he had read my books. He was utterly charming and polite.
Thank you Stephanie Gilchrist for putting this together. I thoroughly enjoyed the day.
