Skyping Candy Gourlay

On Thursday February 11, students in English class 8F1 interviewed the award winning children’s author, Candy Gourlay. The students asked Candy about the inspiration for her books Tall Story and Shine and gained tips on how to develop their own creative writing.

'I thought the Skype call was brilliant,' said year 8 student, Bibi Baptiste. 'Candy’s answers to our questions were very interesting; her answers were relatable and easy to understand. I've read ‘Shine’ and it was great! Candy Gourlay was so warm and welcoming towards all of us and made us feel that we could speak freely. It was great to Skype and I hope to do it again sometime with other authors.'
