Children’s Seminar

August 24, 2016 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm


The Children’s Book Council of Australia, link ACT Branch, aims to bring children and quality children’s books together. We invite children to attend an afternoon where Australian authors and illustrators will speak and answer questions. The children are encouraged to bring with them any copies of books by the speakers, to have signed or to use as reference for discussion. Afternoon tea will be provided and the children who attend will be presented with a certificate. Students from Year 4 to Year 8 are welcome to attend.

Additionally, Turner students have been writing their own Australian Stories and recording them for visitors to listen to. To access these stories bring along your smart phones or iPads with QR Code readers on them and an earpiece.
