On Friday, Harrisdale’s Debating Club competed in Round Four of their interschool debating competition. They won three of their four debates, with this round’s topics focusing on politics. Congratulations to our students for their spirited and capable performances. Perhaps among them are some of Australia’s future political leaders?
This morning Natalya Hawrylak from the Fremantle Literature Centre conducted an interactive picture book workshop with a group of Year 7 students. Natalya captivated and inspired the students with an insight into the process behind creating picture books, then engaged them in analysing some Australian picture books including those of Shaun Tan, Mem Fox and Gary Crew.
