CBRSS High School students at Writers Fest

Writers Festival

Our school was invited this year to have student MCs to introduce the writers speaking on the student day of the Byron Bay Writers Festival.

Our MCs performed so beautifully and all the staff were very proud of the way they shone for our school.

All the introductory speeches were carefully crafted and were respectful, knowledgeable and entertaining. One writer even suggested that the introduction by Mackenzie and Willow from Year 10 was so good that they should be the ones being interviewed!

Congratulations to you wonderful MCs – Bella Walz, Mackenzie Stephan, Willow Cuthbert-Howard, Lily Harrison and Jasmine Walcott.

Overall our students were excellent in the audience. They were highly entertained by such writers as John Marsden, Bob Brown, Osama Sami and Tara June Winch among others. Despite the wind and rain, the day was inspiring.
