Melbourne Writers Festival

Padua College students took part in the Melbourne Writers Festival during term 3. Students from Padua Rosebud were split into the Readers and the Writers and attended different exhibitions. Some students went to the Immigration Museum to explore the exhibitions and participate in a workshop run by Australian author, Alice Pung. She is photographed here with the Rosebud Writers Group and English Teacher, Amy Cheers.

Our other students saw the 2019 Inky Award winner, Lynette Noni and YA author, Will Kostakis. All students then explored the State Library, many for the first time. This excursion was a great inspiration to our students, who could now appreciate the unique ways in which authors approach the writing process.
