The College's Wordsmiths took part in a writing challenge this week, all in support of the National Write A Book In A Day, an initiative raising funds for The Kids' Cancer Project. The nine novels completed will be delivered to hospitals in Australia and read to children undergoing treatment.
About 90 young writers from the Wordsmiths' Club in Years 7 to 12 took part in the Write a Book in a Day. This challenge is part of a National Writing Project, which combines storytelling magic and fundraising for research into Kid’s Cancer.
Each Somerset Team (four Senior teams years 11 to 12 and five Middle Years teams years 7 to 10), wrote, illustrated, bound their books and contributed $310 towards the National Kids Cancer Project.
The books in PDF form and hard copy will be distributed across Australia and will be read to children who are diagnosed with cancer. The initiative, along with the funds, is a hugely compassionate gesture by our young writers.
