Author Visit – Dr Cameron Stelzer, The Story Doctor

On Thursday 12 September, we have a special visit from Author and Illustrator Dr Cameron Stelzer. Dr Cameron is visiting Kapinara Primary School to run workshops with our PP-2 students. PP students will enjoy an interactive Big Screen Book Reading and follow-along drawing activity with Cameron. Year 1-2 students will be focusing on idea formation and inspirations for narratives, and exploring the combination of words and visual elements. Students and teachers are looking forward to a great day!

In conjunction with the Author Visit, Kapinara PS families have a special opportunity to purchase signed and personalised copies of Cameron’s books at special prices. Individual books are $15 each and there are also exclusive book sets available. Students will receive an order form on the day of the workshops.
