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.
