Our Grade 4's and 5's were very fortunate to have Lori Preston visit our school yesterday. Lori Preston is an East London based author who has written a book called 'Thabo the Space Dude'.
Lori came to talk to the pupils about how her journey as an author began and she shared some important steps to remember when writing a story. Lori read an extract from the book which is written for South African children using language that these children use and understand. She played a few games with our children, answered questions and handed out stickers. Pupils had the opportunity to buy Lori's book and she wrote in and signed each copy. She has also donated a copy to our school library.
What a wonderful experience for our children! Thank you, Lori Preston, for sharing your journey with us.
