ACCoS Writers Festival 2017


Mark Hassall (Across School Leader) and Remuera Primary School hosted a wonderful gathering of students from across our community on Thursday 7th of September. Students were encouraged and inspired to write through a range of engaging stimuli,

Alan Trussell-Cullen, a visiting author, had them all creating poetry machines while I was there.  It was fabulous to see students from Y3 to Y9 thinking outside the square and delving into the aspects of poetry that such a machine might generate. 

A writers' trail around the school encouraged mixed groups of students from our various schools to communicate and collaborate.   I enjoyed the opportunity to catch up with a number of teachers from the community too.

The sense of community learning was enhanced by the girls from EGGS who ran a special workshop session for the intermediates.

Our kids came back buzzing. Thanks to Mark for organising such a great community day.  Roll on next year's event
