Sami Bayly Illustrator visit

We are so excited to have award-winning author and illustrator, Sami Bayly, visiting the College in Week 5. She will be presenting to students in Years 3-6, as well as chatting with our Senior Art Students about her pathway from school student, to studying Natural History Illustration at the University of Newcastle, to becoming a published author and illustrator at only 24 years of age!

Sami’s book The Illustrated Encyclopaedia of Ugly Animals won an Honours award last year in the CBCA Book of the Year Awards, and The Illustrated Encyclopaedia of Dangerous Animals is on the Shortlist this year.
