Children’s author, teacher and comedian Oliver Phommavanh stopped by Moorebank High School to share some words of wisdom with students and promote reading and writing. Reporter Natalie Pilato asked a group of year 7 students what they took from his visit.
■ Brendon Wood:
"There's lots involved in making a book. There's a lot that goes into getting a book published."
■ Danny Fong:
"I learnt about Oliver's past and the process of how to get a book put together."
■ Alina Haque:
"Oliver gave me hope not to lose my personality and stay true to myself. The way he writes and tells his stories is really awesome."
■ Laura Blackmore:
"Oliver inspired me to be myself and follow my dreams and don't believe what people say. You can do anything."
