Visit by Author Saci Lloyd
To celebrate World Book Day on Thursday 2nd March, the author Saci Lloyd visited the school to give a hugely entertaining talk to all of the girls in Years 9 and 10. Saci is the author of The Carbon Diaries 1 and 2; Momentum and It’s the End of the World as We Know It.
Saci was really keen to encourage the girls to be proud of their womanhood and be confident that they can do anything they want to. Her novels are not just stories but have important points to make as well and she urged the girls to take an interest in current affairs and the world around them. Saci is very interested in hot topics such as global warming and these issues are reflected in her novels. One of the best things about Saci’s talk was her ability to act out extracts from her own stories with sound effects, not just read them. The students really appreciated her energy and enthusiasm.
