Great Race

Well that was fun! Today I revisited the friendly students and staff of Sharon Lutheran School in Mong Kok for a story-telling of The Tale of Pin Yin Panda with a difference! 16 brave souls volunteered to act the parts of the 12 animals of the Chinese Zodiac, not to mention the Cat, the Stinkbug and the Frog…and of course, Pin Yin Panda herself! They threw themselves into their roles with great enthusiasm, and we even managed to include a re-enactment of the Great Race around the assembly hall! Huge thanks to Marcus Lo and principal Jessie Yum for having me back for a very enjoyable afternoon!

Huge thanks to Jennifer Glittenberg and a big hello to the 22 talented teen writers of Western Academy Beijing who joined me on a 3 day writing workshop adventure from 9th to 11th October! After an introductory session at the school on Wednesday afternoon, and a talk to the mums and dads of WAB as part of WAB’s Distinguished Speaker series that evening, we departed next morning for a scenic drive to the school’s fabulous eco-friendly camp in the mountains at Miao Liang, complete with solar energy panels, eco-cabins and yurts! I thoroughly enjoyed working with the students, through intensive story planning to first drafts. Their stories were very impressive indeed and I look forward to seeing the final products!
