Richard Kurti visit

Award-winning screenwriter and author, Richard Kurti, conducted an exclusive workshop with 15 year 7s to mark the culmination of a special reading project.

Mr Kurti, known for his popular titles ‘Monkey Wars’ and ‘Maladapted’, spent an afternoon on Monday, June 4 working with 7W5 on honing their creative writing skills.

Students have been reading a specially-adapted version of Monkey Wars as part of a Teach First-supported project aimed at informing how best to developing a love of reading within the school.

The students found it an invaluable experience and participated in each part of Mr Kurti’s brilliant workshop with excellence and enthusiasm.
