My Final School Visit as Laureate – Edgar’s Creek Primary School

My final school visit as the Australian Children’s Laureate was to Edgar’s Creek Primary School.

The ACLF provided a grant of $10,000 for the new school in Wollert, Victoria, to buy culturally diverse books for the library.

I was pleased to present two workshops to the fantastic kids from grades two to six. What an amazing group of students they were!

Thank you to the staff, especially Sara Johns and Ben Caddy, who looked after me during my visit and to Assistant Principal Matthew Dunstone.
