Recently, we were visited by children’s author Peter J Murray. Peter delivered two engaging sessions for Year 7 and Year 8 in St. Anne’s Hall during the morning and were entertained by snippets from his novels Scabbajack and Dawn Demons.  At lunchtime, there was the opportunity to buy books and have them signed.

The students’ response to the morning was amazing: Pete regaled that in the last 15 years of visiting schools, he had never seen such a positive response to his book signing. Year 8 smashed his previous record as he sold out of books within half an hour. The demand was so high, he returned the following week with plenty more books for those who missed out the first time around.

Thank you to Peter for coming in spend time with our students and thank you to Mrs Healy in the Learning Resource Room for organising such a fantastic experience.

A selection of Peter J Murray’s books are available for reading in the Learning Resource Room and remember, if you are reading one of Pete’s books, you can take a QUIZ on Accelerated Reader to boost your scores!
