Year 6 Write a Book in a Day

​Our Year 6 girls participated in the Write a Book in a Day competition on Wednesday. This challenging and rewarding writing experience required students to work in teams to write and illustrate a book from start to finish, all in 12 hours! To make it even more fun, a set of unique words​ had to be included in each story. The completed books will be donated to children in hospitals across Australia. Books written for children, by children.

Through sponsorship, the Year 6 girls raised close to $6000 to donate to The Kids' Cancer Project, a national charity with a mission to support scientific research to help children with cancer. 

Write a Book in a Day was a wonderful collaborative writing experience and for many students it was their first published book! Congratulations to all girls for their excellent teamwork and outstanding fundraising.​
