The 2020 Anthology of writing by our Year 7 & 8 students

The Writer’s Notebook was introduced to our Year 7 and 8 Literacy classes during the remote learning stage of 2020.

Our Writer’s Notebook program is based on the research of Fletcher and Portalupi who describe the Writer’s Notebook as a place “where a writer can engage in the fun, often messy job of being a writer, practising, listening, playing with language, gathering images and insights and ideas. The purpose of such a notebook is to nourish the writer … such a notebook… is one of the most essential tools of the trade.”

Our students have enthusiastically engaged in the messy process of writing and they have created some great works of literary merit.

We invite you to enjoy this collection of their work.
