Last week, Tom Banks, author of The Great Galloon and Reading Patron to our school, visited the Library. The Library was flooded with dozens of starstruck students and aspiring writers. While he was there, Tom answered questions; made recommendations for students who wanted to broaden their reading tastes and even took a group photograph!
In the past he has led a book club with a handful of students. Students in Year 1-6 have also benefited from story writing workshops led by him.
Tom even left a couple copies of his novels, The Great Galloon and The Pirate Queen in our Library. The Great Galloon is a heroic and humorous adventure following Captain Meredith Anstruther as he tries to foil his dastardly brother’s evil schemes. It is also our book of the week. Find this and other literary treasures in our school Library!
