The Hermitage School

Inspire, Learn, Achieve

The Hermitage Book Week gets off to a roaring start!

There was great excitement in school this week, when the children's book illustrator, Garry Parsons, came to visit for the day. 

Garry Parsons is an award winning illustrator of books for children including the best selling picture book “The Dinosaur that Pooped Christmas” by Tom Fletcher and Dougie Poynter. He has also illustrated books for other leading authors, including Kes Gray, Julia Jarman and Julia Donaldson. 

The day started with a whole school assembly, which was a fun introduction to Garry's life as an illustrator. This was followed by interactive workshops with all the children, which everyone thoroughly enjoyed. 

Thank you to Garry for enthusing us all to have a go, and to our Reading Leader, Mrs Kimani, for arranging this superb event.
