This week students from our STEPs Learning Community came together at Erskine Park High to participate in our annual STEPs Book Forum.
This event enables our students to discuss the picture books chosen by the National Book Council for awards.
Blackwell's book was called OUT - the story of a refugee family coming by boat to a new land. The book was illustrated by a local artist Owen Swan. We were lucky enough to have Owen visit our school and discuss what lies behind the pages of such an emotional topic.
Visit our Facebook page to watch a trailer created by the students or ask your child about "Out" and the other books discussed this term.
Our Stage 2 and Stage 3 students were confident and thought proving in their discussions. Congratulations to the team!
