Author Helen Dennis gave a wonderful and inspiring talk to all pupils in Years 5 to 8.
Helen Dennis writes adventures stories for children aged 9 to 99. She told the children her personal story of how she had written her first book aged 11 in her garden shed. Her teacher at the time encouraged her to send it off and although it wasn't published, she held onto the dream of becoming a writer from then onwards. She certainly made our pupils realise that becoming an author is is a possibility for everyone.
The pupils thoroughly enjoyed Helen's presentation and we look forward welcoming her back to Westbourne House in the future.
