Annandale Public School
Red Room Education , 2019
Annandale Public School is a historic building which features the original gate of the old Annandale Estate circa 1796. As well as providing mainstream K - 6 education, the school has developed special purpose units that provide for wider community needs. These include a preschool, an early intervention unit for children with disabilities, and itinerant support teachers for hearing. The school's superordinate goal is a commitment to provide students with: a range of quality learning experiences; opportunities to develop the skills and understandings necessary to live a confident, satisfying and productive life; and a friendly, supportive and creative environment.
Poet Emily Crocker leads workshops on poetry writing and guerilla publishing with years 3 and 4 from Annandale Public School.

Her debut chapbook 'Girls and Buoyant' was published by Subbed In in 2017. Other poems have appeared in Cordite Poetry Review, Verity La, Southerly, and Australian Poetry Journal.
