Girls inspired by author visit

Author, literary critic and creative writing professor Scarlett Thomas visited the Lower school to talk to Years 3-6 about her Worldquake series of books. 

The girls were transported to a land of dragons, witches and magic, as she spoke passionately about her life as an author and the creative writing process, emphasising the need to edit, correct, re-write - even throwing out a first draft and starting again!

Scarlett was incredibly impressed by the girls' attentiveness and commented on their exemplary behaviour and engagement which was, she said, better than any other school she had visited.
