Local author James Campbell has visited The Deanes to pass on his love of writing to a very lucky group of Year 7 students. Students spent two lessons in the school's library learning about the writing process, and developing their own writing skills.
The students developed their writing skills through a range of activities, and left the session feeling energised and much more confidence about their own writing. They all found it to be a valuable day, and said it had really helped their understanding of how to write stories.
James also donated a selection of his autographed books to the school library, where they can be enjoyed by all students.
