Tannum Sands State School stuns our visiting authors and illustrators!

​Jacqueline Harvey and 'Clementine'
All the presenters were impressed by our students, our library and our school. Commenting on the displays created by our students, the student behaviour and student responses to their sessions. The students invited to attend writing workshops amazed Jacqueline Harvey and Kathryn Apel with their involvement in the sessions, their ability to express their writing goals and their enthusiasm to produce quality writing.
Our students made connections with authors and illustrators, inspiring and challenging them. As Dave Hackett said, "It's really important because a love of reading and a love of books changes who you are, it changes your future."
Two book launches, Jacqueline Harvey’s launch of Clementine Rose and the Paris Puzzle and QGC’s launch of My Dad Works on an Island added to the excitement of the sessions at our school.
All the presenters have posted information about our school through online media.
