Author Aleesah Darlison visits St Catherine's


Earlier this week,  author Aleesah Darlison visited our school to congratulate Savanna E (Yr 6) for her winning illustration in the book “Yay! It's Library Day".  Savanna entered her picture over two years ago into a competition and her illustration was chosen from a field of hundreds of children across Australia.  

During her presentation, Aleesah spoke of the importance of following dreams, as she was always passionate about being an author, even as a child. She also spoke of how her love of animals means that they often feature as characters in her stories.  Aleesah has written a number of books and her enthusiasm for writing was inspirational for the students.  Congratulations Savannah! 


​For any other budding illustrators in our community, Wombat books is running another competition for students to illustrate a story about a wombat travelling around Australia.  For further information, head to the Wombat Books website.
