One of our Kindy students, Lucy Herridge has made a splash in the publishing world! Lucy was moved to write a story which began on post it notes. Lucy sent off a draft narrative to HarperCollins Publishing house and received a letter response from the publisher, and has had some articles written about her.
When PCS found out about her efforts, Mr Ollis, our iCentre Manage, Teacher Librarian, gained permission from the author and her parents, and used a book publishing software to create a picture book using Lucy’s text. The book was shared with her Kindergarten peers and Lucy was able to read and share the illustrations with her class.
Lucy’s work has inspired many of her classmates who have been enthused to continue to hone and write stories. We are very proud of Lucy and her enthusiasm. We should never underestimate our children’s God-given gifts, passions, and ideas that can make a difference if we just step out and give it a go.
