Creative Writers

It is the Sydney Writers Festival this week and our budding writers of Middle School are celebrating by exploring the works of Roald Dahl.

 

Middle School encourages students to develop their passions and explore their emerging interests through a range of Excellence Groups and Co-Curricular Programs. The Writers Excellence Group, led by Mrs Roxanne Gray, aims to help students develop their writing skills and find their voice.

 

The students are presently analysing Roald Dahl’s writing style and seeking to imitate his writing style to gain a deeper understanding of the writing process. Through these practical exercises, students participating in the Writers Excellence Group, will develop their own writing style. 

 

The Writers Excellence Group meets every fortnight, and Roald Dahl is the first of a number of authors which the students will be studying throughout the year.
