It’s always lovely when students and parents take the time to tell you how much they enjoyed an activity, and this week three separate parents came to tell me how their kids raved about their experiences at Voices on the Coast Literature Festival. Thanks to TL extraordinaire, Kelly Dunham, and her team at Immanuel Lutheran College for organizing another great event. I’ve got students in senior college now who’ve been going every year since Year 5 and they look forward to it eagerly.
This year our students saw Aleesah Darlison, Oliver Phommavanh, Mark Wilson, Catherine Jinks, Barry Jonsberg (my personal favourite – hilarious!), Sean Williams, Skye Melki-Wegner, Belinda Murrell and many more. Despite the bitter wind, it was a great couple of days and really inspires those kids to read the books of the authors they’ve seen.
