Scribblers Festival Success at Scotch

As part of the College's ongoing partnership with FORM, we were delighted to have hosted the school programme in the inaugural Scribblers Festival.

Storytelling. Characters. Plot twists. Beginnings, middles, and ends. From Young Adult fiction to the children's comic, the new annual Scribblers Festival has the words and pictures, authors and illustrators to go full volume with young Australians' favourite books.

Over three days, from 9 - 11 May, Scotch College opened it's doors to students from across Western Australia as they joined our boys to engage with over 20 authors and illustrators from across the globe.

With a specific Junior, Middle and Senior stream, students across all three sub-schools benefitted from this opportunity to develop their passion for literacy; a fundamental key to engaging boys in learning.

Over lunch breaks, students purchased books, had their copies signed and were entertained by roving artists and performers on the College's oval.

Our vision for hosting this festival was to inspire our boys through encouraging the avid readers to read more and to light a flame for the reluctant readers. Reading is a powerful tool not just for learning but to open one's mind to a world of endless possibilities.
