World Literacy Day Monday September 8, 2014

Robertson Road School celebrated World Literacy day on Monday September 8. We have four authors visit - Tim Tipene, David Riley, Maria Gill and John Carr. Most classes were lucky to hear 3 authors. We have their books in the library.

Tim Tipene has written Warrior Kids, Haere Ra, Taming the Taniwha amongst others. David Riley, who is a teacher at Tangaroa College, is known for his biographies on Sonny Bill Williams and Benji Marshall, as well as a book on Niuean role-models called We are the Rock.  Maria Gill has written a lot of non-fiction books including Eruption, New Zealand Hall of Fame, Running the Country, RangitotoNew Zealand Sports Hall of Fame, Save our Seas

All the authors were hugely inspirational and I promise that I will buy more copies of David Riley's books next year. Come to the library and borrow their books.
