Writer in Residence
15th March 2016 by TAG Farnborough Airport
Fernhill students and staff had a busy and exciting week of events to celebrate World Book Day. ‘The Punctuation Show’ kick started the week with a lively presentation to all Year 7 & 8 students. Audience participation was a must! Think ‘We Will Rock You!’
Writer in Residence, Dave Cryer, spent two days with students leading creative writing workshops and was truly impressed by the quantity and quality of writing. The school is delighted that TAG Farnborough Airport are sponsoring Dave’s residency; students really appreciate learning from him – even returning at break times to continue writing!
Mrs Murdoch said, “It really was fantastic to hear so many different authors speak passionately about ‘Reading for Pleasure’ and creative writing. Recently Fernhill students have entered a number of story writing competitions and we wish them every success with their endeavours; maybe one will become a successful author or song writer in the future?
