Mr. Greg Hoare – Principal St. Clare’s School
Eva visited St Clare’s as an “Author in Residence”. During her time here she visited each class for a day to work with students on writing and illustrating techniques. Students learnt about how she creates her beautiful picture books. Eva dedicated time to reading all of her stories before taking the students through her workshops. Students particularly loved hearing the stories about animals from our region, such as Cassy the Cassowary and Nipper the Crocodile. The students enjoyed Eva’s visit and gained immensely from it as it assisted them in writing their own stories. A great experience!
Thanks Eva for your time out our school it was great.
Vicki Conomo – Principal at St Rita’s School
During last term, St Rita’s students were delighted to welcome local author, Eva Marie Welsh into their classrooms. During her week at St Rita’s Eva shared her published stories with the students, passing on useful writing and illustrating tips. She has inspired many of our children to express their creativity and imagination.
Many students commented, “ I just want to be like Eva when I am older and write my own books.”
I sincerely recommend that every child be given the opportunity to be inspired by Eva.
