Students Meet Author

On Tuesday, Year 7 and 8 students took a trip to Whitley Bay Library to listen to a presentation by author and adventurer Matt Dickinson. Some students bought copies of his novels, and had the opportunity for these to be signed. A copy of these can be found in the LRC.

Students learned of Matt’s adventures and exciting action-packed career as an award-winning Director and Cameraman for National Geographic TV and the Discovery Channel, which saw him film on Everest’s summit (the first British filmmaker to do so and come back alive), in Antarctica, Greenland, Alaska and on top of the highest live volcano in
the world.
The boys were so inspired by Matt’s stories trip that they also produced some creative writing pieces imagining what it might be like to be an explorer themselves. Look out for these in this half term’s newsletter…
