Author Anna Fienberg visits St Joseph's

Our school community was very fortunate to have Anna Fienberg visit and tell the children of what motivates her to write books, what is involved in writing books, and shared her love of reading. Anna was most impressed with the students of St. Joseph’s, with many children taking the time to individually thank her - some beautiful children created art for Anna that was inspired by her books. As her last school visit of the year, Anna commented that her experience at St. Joseph’s has finished her year on a high.

Anna Fienberg grew up in a house filled with books. Her mother was a teacher librarian who relished stories as much as chocolates. 'On Sunday mornings we'd all lie in bed with our books, lost in magical wardrobes, witches’ spells, genies’ magic... What we were going to read next was just as important in our family as what was for lunch!' says Anna. ( Anna started writing stories when she was eight, but never imagined being an author. Her first book, Billy Bear and the Wild Winter, was published in 1988, since then, Anna has written over forty books and has received several awards for her work.

    Last Friday, our school community truly demonstrated how we can pull together to achieve amazing things. The students and teachers enjoyed a day of crazy socks, a sausage sizzle, zooper doopers and shooting goals. The students and teachers had so much fun, especially when the students were trying to shoot a goal against their teacher. We raised roughly $1,500 which will be donated to Catholic Mission to support families in Ethiopia facing malnutrition and food insecurity. These funds raised will help sustain and enrich the lives of vulnerable children who are in need of our support. Thank you to our community for working together to help those in need. “Together we can” do amazing things to answer God’s call to action.
