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