Marc McBride’s Dramatic Dragons!

Wow!    It was so special to see how Marc McBride,  illustrator of Deltora Quest, uses  colours, backgrounds and an airbrush to create amazing dragons, creatures and characters!

Marc made us think about backgrounds, shapes and shadows (light sources) … and settings.

So many book covers!

Berwick RSL – Grade 4 Talk 2018

Mr Terry Hornbuckle from Berwick RSL presented an insightful talk to our Grade 4 students on Friday April 20th. He is a Vietnam War veteran and he presented a moving account of action at Gallipoli all those year ago on 25th April, 1915 and he also spoke of the sacrifices many others have made in wars. Our thanks are extended to Mr Hornbuckle for finding the time to talk to our Grade 4 students.

 

Terry showed us an old RSL photo of Diggers at the pyramids in Egypt, an old Slouch Hat, his heavy woolen overcoat uniforms and he even even showed us some of his own special medals.
