Years 4, 5 & 6: Dragon world

Join Tamara and Merlin – the legendary sorcerer on a quest to save the planet with the help of dragons. The world is on the cusp of destruction. Humans have unleashed toxic dragons with their mining of the earth’s vast depths and felling of the great forests. Only a master dragon can tame these potent forces and teach humankind to protect the planet. Merlin needs you to help him to discover the dragons and find the elements for his spell to conceive a master dragon. Are you ready?

Years 2 & 3: circus

Roll up! Roll up! Gilbert, circus performer extraordinaire and Amazing Esme author Tamara Macfarlane present hilarious interactive activities that expound the importance of character, setting and action in any story. Take the chance to pull a character from a suitcase, dress up as a donkey, run away with the circus, and create a spontaneous setting. BRACE YOURSELVES for an author event like no other!

Foundation and Year 1: dinosaurs

Dinosaur discoveries, stomping sound poems and storytelling with giant inflatable dinosaurs! Leap onto the back of Wings – the magic pterodactyl and soar over Roar Island to collect missing dinosaur facts. Gilbert and ET Harper immerse your young adventurers in the thrilling world of narrative non-fiction. An exciting opportunity for imaginations to explore the prehistoric wonderland created in Dylan’s Amazing Dinosaurs!

“Best author event that we have had in the ten years that I have been at the school. They fully engaged all the children, even the most reluctant ones were captivated.”
