Students have been invited to see a private screening of the new George Lucas Film 'Red Tails'. (A story about the first Afro-American WWII Fighter Pilots). Following the screening they will have the opportunity to interview the film's stars including Hollywood Actor Cuba Gooding Junior.


Selected Year 9 girls are taking part in a collaborative art project with 9 students from Kilmorie Primary School. They will be constructing a clay Totem Pole to be placed in the Kilmorie School Wild Garden.


Author Visit: Phil Earle
Phil Earle, author of Being Billy and Saving Daisy, came and ran two creative writing workshops for 40 Year 8 Students. He talked about how he didn't initially like reading, but he got hooked by cartoon books like MAUS, Roy of the Rovers and Flat Stanley. He told us about his experiences of working in a children's home and how that experience helped him write his first two books. He talked about being passionate about your topic as that makes the words flow easily. He showed the girls how to break the writing into manageable steps. He read half the prologue and worked with the girls so that they could create the second half for themselves. They came up with some very imaginative stories that left you on the edge of your seat wondering what was going to happen next. He really left the girls feeling they too could create great stories.
