On Sunday August 11th, Debbie and I were invited to the Opening of the ‘My Story’ Postcard display that we had been involved with earlier in the year. It was great to see the works of the children and to read their stories was wonderful. There were over 800 stories, many were migrant stories, some were moving interstate stories and some were heartfelt life stories all with a picture to accompany. We accept that children will adapt, but we forget also that they have thoughts and feelings and sometimes are not sure how to express them.
My thanks goes to Wanda Bennett for inviting me along as guest speaker and as creative writing tutor with these children. It was a pleasure working with Wanda, Debbie and the children on this project.
