Mark Greenwood Author Visit

Today the Grade Four students had an incursion with West Australian author, Mark Greenwood.

Mark has written many award winning picture story books that focus on Australian history and legends. Some of our favourite stories by Mark are Jandamarra, The Legend of Lasseter’s Reef, Simpson and his Donkey and Our Big Island.

We have been reading Mark’s books in class, and it was great to meet him in person and listen to his stories. He told us lots of great tales from his adventures in outback Australia and abroad.

After the incursion, we wrote letters to Mark to thank him for visiting and to inform him of our highlights of the presentation. Miss Jordan will email the blog link to Mark so he can read the letters.

Thank you to Mark Greenwood for inspiring and motivating the grade four students to write, tell stories and follow your passions!
