Author Visit – Monday 12th March 2018
On Monday 12th March we were delighted to welcome Joffre White, author and Patron of Reading to Wollaston School.
Joffre wowed Year 7 and 8’s with his inspirational ‘Power of Words’ session. The sessions were interactive with Joffre asking for student responses and at one point he came running across the front, firing a Disc Shooter at the students, creating an atmosphere of frivolity which the students found hilarious! The talk was extremely inspiring, touching on important topics such as; social media, bullying, dreams and aspirations. All with the help of a good book, that just might be the inspiration to take young people on their a journey and help them fulfil their dreams and ambitions.
The next part of the day Joffre worked with selected students in Year 7 & 8 refining their creative writing skills and finally Joffre spent some time with a couple of Year 10 classes providing ideas and inspiration for their GCSE narrative exam.
