Our final event celebrating NYR was Hear It! And hear it we did! Students, staff, families and the wider community heard from Bec Kavanagh, Declan Fay and Tim Pegler.
As the audience arrived, the Junior Guitar Ensemble performed in the functions room, setting the scene for a wonderful evening. They were followed by Bailey who entertained us with his wonderful solo rendition.
While in the theatre, our student ushers, Owen, Julian, Wyatt and Nick directed us to our seats, and our talented pianists Jackson, Adrian and Luke welcomed us.
Hear It! was an inspiring night where three authors/writers talked about their experiences in the profession. It was a very motivating session which covered a range of topics about reading and writing alike. For many aspiring writers, there was lots of advice and knowledge to gain. Hear It! has encouraged me, and I’m sure many others, to continue with an enjoyment of all aspects of writing, and in particular to appreciate reading. Nick

It was very entertaining and funny. It was certainly worth going to. The authors had lots of interesting things to talk about. Adam
I thought the talk night was very good. The writers speaking inspired me to write more about what l want and that nothing is impossible. Jackson
Following on from discussion on the night about whether journalism was dead, Tim has written a post on his blog titled ‘Are newspapers terminal?’
Every detail was just perfect and it was so inspirational. I wish all the boys could have been there. Marina
I had to drag my son there and l had to drag him home! Melissa
