2017 Writing Competition
We have been inundated with entries for our Writing Competition. You can look through the list of participating schools on our website and read the winning entries in the October issue.
Our centenary anthology 'For Keeps' is an invaluable addition to any bedside table. It makes the ideal Christmas present for daughters and granddaughters, sons and grandsons ... as well as dads and granddads, mums and grandmums.
Teaching ideas for the workshops
A century of words ...
A wonderful day to commemorate our centenary was held at the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney on Tuesday 2 August 2016 during Education Week. Three hundred
students joined us to enjoy artist and writer workshops, as well as a visit by the Taronga Zoomobile. Hundreds more students and teachers across the state viewed the workshops and official ceremony via live streaming.
The Hon. Adrian Piccoli MP, Minister for Education, launched our fabulous centenary anthology, For Keeps, and, along with NSW Governor His Excellency General The Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (ret'd) and Mrs Hurley, presented prizes to our competition-winning students. Winners received an enormous hamper from Staedtler (Pacific) P/L, and their schools received an X360 Notebook from HP.
