John Pole's visit

In March, the story teller John Pole visited TRS to work with some of our Year 8 students on their creative writing and speaking and listening skills. John told lots of different kinds of stories and ran workshops on story telling, giving the students the opportunity to have a go themselves. We hope the students had some fun but also improved their skills.

Here’s what John had to say about his day:

“I enjoyed the sessions a lot and also meeting staff and students at TRS. Please thank the students too for being such attentive listeners.”

And here’s what our students had to say:

“I really enjoyed it because we don’t usually get to do stuff like that”.

“I liked the expression in his voice”.

“It was different to everything else we do”.

“I loved it and enjoyed it”.
