All Saints Anglican School, QLD
Red Room Education , 2017
All Saints Anglican School is a world-class Christian school where everyone joyfully reaches their full potential.
In this school students and members of staff will act confidently and considerately, rejoicing in the knowledge that they are giving their best in a community where they belong and are valued. They will be aware of the integrity that flows from balancing their spiritual, academic, social, physical, emotional and creative impulses. A sense of wellbeing and optimism will characterise all aspects of school life.
On Friday, 24 March, as part of the Alternative Learning Program at All Saints Anglican School on the Gold Coast, Scott Sneddon inspired 220 Year 10 students with a poetic performance and a Q&A session where he shared his techniques for performance and poetic language. Students had the opportunity to take part in thought provoking writing activies.
