The School

North Lakes State College is a State School that offers education for both boys and girls from the Preparatory school year through to Year 12. The College has established a well-planned and sequenced curriculum program that is supported by a vast selection of extra curricular activities and a pastoral care program which assists each student to explore their talents, interests, and abilities.

The Project

In February, acclaimed poet Scott Sneddon presented a series of workshops to Year 11 students at North Lakes State College, using activities inspired by the Toilet Doors learning resource. Scott guided the students through intensive poetry writing exercises and inspired them to experiment with guerrilla publishing their poetry.  

Scott did some writing himself, creating a piece inspired by his experience at North Lakes State College.
