Now in its seventh year, The Writer’s Club is an after school writing program that develops both creative thinking and writing skills in a positive club like atmosphere.
The Writer's Club runs at Oakleigh Primary School but is open to all students.
At Oakleigh this year, we run with one multilevel group catering for young writers in Years 3 - 6.
Our workshop officially starts at 4.15pm to 5.45pm but students are welcome to arrive form 3.30pm onwards.
Our goal is to encourage club members to explore their unique storytelling style and voice. Children have the time and space to experiment with a variety of genres and writing techniques while developing creativity and confidence.We support club members every step of way with effective strategies and tecniques to scaffold learning and enable them to experience success. Class sizes are limited to 18 to allow for lots of interaction and sharing of our work.
