Our year 4, 5 and 6 girls spent a wonderful hour listening to Australian author Jacqueline Harvey as she entertained them all with tales of her youth and imagination.
Jacqueline Harvey is the writer of the very successful Clementine Rose and Alice Miranda novels. They are great stories full of mystery, adventure and humour.
Her website is a delight to play around on. You can put in your own name and come up with a wonderful and quirky new name just like Alice-Miranda Highton-Smith-Kennington-Jones

All of her books are out at the moment but you can come and reserve them. Here is a sneak peek at just a few of them.
Thank you Jacqueline Harvey and Random House for sharing her with us. We were very lucky indeed!
Our wonderful and talented Kapa Haka performed a welcome for her. It was very moving to watch and we are all so proud of your performance.
