Canberra and Melbourne Tour
Last week my best grown up friend Jacqueline Harvey spent most of the week in Canberra and Melbourne meeting lots of children and visiting fantastic schools, bookshops and libraries. She was very excited to go back to Gib Gate in Mittagong where she started her teaching career, then to Canberra Girls Grammar and to the fantastic Paperchain Books in Manuka – where they had even painted my picture on the shop window!
Wednesday came PLC Melbourne followed by both Baden Powell Campuses and then to Dymocks in Camberwell to meet some very keen readers. Thursday started at Lowther Hall – a beautiful school with one of the fanciest main buildings you could ever imagine then to meet a great group of children at Brunswick North followed by St Therese’s. Jacqueline loved spending the day with Natasha from Book Bonding and they finished up at Niddrie Library where she met one of her biggest fans!
Friday was another busy day visiting St Martin of Tours in Rosanna – amazing – then to Camberwell Grammar. There are lots of photos and a link or two to everything she’s been doing.
I know I’m tired just thinking about it so she must be quite exhausted!
Have a wonderful week.
Lots of love,
