Katy Birchall Author Visit

The Holmesdale School were very pleased to be the first school to welcome author Katy Birchall on her week-long tour of schools around the country.

Katy started her morning being interviewed by a group of year 7 students for an article in this term’s school magazine and then went on to talk to a hall full of students from local primary and secondary schools as well as two of our year 7 classes.

After being treated to Katy reading from ‘Superstar Geek’, the first book in her It Girl series, all the students were keen to get involved in helping to create a super ‘hero’ character. A budding artist from Cobham Hall Girls School helped the audience and Katy to create ‘Jeff’ a super villain with his unicorn sidekick.

Katy explained how she uses ideas to build and create her own characters and went on to answer questions from the audience.

A big thank you to Mrs Foreman, Learning Resource Manager and Mrs Russell, Parent Volunteer and 6th form students for making the event  run smoothly and Waterstones, Maidstone branch for supporting our event.
