To kick start The Big Read 2016 we were fortunate enough to be visited by author, Anna Fitzpatrick. On Monday 18 April, groups of students from Years 7 to 11 participated in workshops in which Anna shared her manga drawing skills, experiences and ideas. She also taught students to draw manga cartoon characters before sharing some of her writing with the students.
It was a very enjoyable day for all. Students already exposed to anime and manga were particularly engaged with the workshop as they exchanged their thoughts and opinions on the comic books they enjoy.
