australian story presentation at St Monica's, Canberra

Friday, 16 March 2012

I had such a riot at St Monica's PS today in Canberra - I presented on Australian Story to grades 3 and 4. All the kids were dressed up to represent what they wanted to be when they grew up - it was great fun to quiz them on their aspirations.

At the end of the presentation, I lined up some volunteers and they donned wigs (Capt Cook, Julia Gillard) and held objects that represented historical moments in the book - the arrival of Indigenous Australians, the advent of decimal currency, the Gold Rush, the completion of the Sydney Harbour Bridge - and more. It was wonderful seeing the kids work out where they should stand in the line-up.

Big thanks to the lovely Rachael Hind for hosting my first official presentation for Australian Story!
