A group of keen writers from our school went to Rotorua to meet New Zealand and International writers. They participated in different writing workshops to get ideas on how to craft and publish their work. Some suggestions were to write every day, read for ideas from all kinds of genres and look at different objects for inspiration to start a story. Each student was given a little goody upcycled pack, which I thought was a great idea as a gift. A big thank you to Whaea Aroha for helping out with driving them down and for the students and the positive way they conducted themselves. - Whaea Eliza
