On Tuesday 21 August, seven students in years 7-9 participated in the Book in a Day competition.
The competition required students to write, edit, illustrate, and publish a book over an eight-hour period at school. The funds raised from this project were donated to the Kids’ Cancer Project and the books were sent to patients in children's hospitals across Australia. Our team’s book, The Silver Necklace, was written according to strict parameters provided on the morning of the competition by the organisers. The project required close collaboration, creativity, maturity, and determination.
Below is a brief account of the competition, written by one of the competitors, Tanelle Galea:
The Book in a Day competition was a very enjoyable, worthwhile activity. Everyone had a great time creating the story. Although it took a lot of hard work, it was all worth it in the end. We are very proud of the book that we have produced. We really bonded as a group during the creative process and we all grew and developed our skills as writers and illustrators throughout the day. It was a great experience and we are very thankful that we could participate.
Congratulations to Madeleine Moloney, Ryan Drage, Harmony Faltiska, Tanelle Galea, Sian D’Monte, Katharine Watson and Emily Bojczuk on their amazing effort!
