In late July 2016, Laureate Leigh Hobbs along with Ann James, illustrator, author and friend, travelled about 4,000 kilometres to spend a week with students at Purnululu School in Western Australia's Kimberley region. Here's what they got up to.
Leigh Hobbs: â€˜What a great experience this was. Iâ€™d not seen much of WA apart from Perth and Fremantle previously so the Kimberley was a real revelation.
But of course working with the kids at Purnululu was the reason for the trip â€“ and very much the highlight. And what funny, enthusiastic and spirited kids these are: ready to grasp new ideas and run with them. I feel that I came away having learned more than Iâ€™d taught.'
ACLA would like to thank the students and staff of Purnululu School and the Association of Independent Schools Western Australia for making this trip possible.
