Local Author Visits St Mary's



As a warm up to Literacy Week we were delighted to receive a visit from local author Pauline Burgess.  Pauline held workshops with our Year 10s, explaining to them the features of effective story writing.  Pupils got involved in writing tasks and under Pauline’s guidance, produced some excellent work.  Pupils also got a glimpse into the publishing world as Pauline explained to them the demands, challenges and exhilaration of getting work published.  Finally, pupils enjoyed a reading from her new book ‘Knock Back.’  All pupils had a wonderful morning and we look forward to seeing Pauline again soon in St. Mary’s.
