I’m just finalising my order for craft materials for the Creative Characters workshop on the 23rd April.  There will be lots of fun materials to use when creating the collage characters which will give us lots of ideas for our writing.

There is still time to book your child’s place and more information can be found here.


Smart Owls will be holding a Talking and Listening games workshop on Saturday 19th May at Chinwag in Wollerau.  It will take place from 9.30 – 12.00 and is suitable for English speakers aged 6 (Grade 1) – 8.  This workshop will involve only oral and drawing/colouring activities so is ideal for those who enjoy speaking English but are not confident reading or writing it.  More details are available here.
