COMMUNITY NEWS & EVENTS
This week we join with schools all over Australia celebrating book week.
Our Year 5 students have been reading short listed
picture story books over the pubic address system each
day while students eat their lunch. On 27th August we had
illustrator Paul Harvey speak to all students about his
work as an illustrator.
Student report: “We met Paul Harvey today. He showed us some of the
caricatures he has drawn. He draws lots of people who
play different types of sport. He drew a caricature of us it
was amazing. He also drew caricatures of other children.
He is very talented. Paul Harvey taught us that a
caricature has three important parts:
1. Look like a person
2. Exaggerate the features
3. Show something about the person.
We really enjoyed Paul’s visit.”
