Andy Griffith’s Writing Competition

Are you interested in writing your own short story titled ‘Living in a Treehouse’? It can be no longer than 400 words long and Andy Griffiths will be judging it.  Dymocks and Pan MacMillan invite you to enter the competition and you have until the 20th of October if you are interested. The winning entry will be lucky enough to have Terry Denton illustrate the story and the top 10 entries (including the winner), will win a 15 piece pack of Andy Griffith’s books which will include a set of signed, special edition Treehouse hardbacks. Winners will be announced by Friday 27 November 2015.

Please go to the websites below and all the details are there for your parents to register you, if you decide to enter your story.

Andy Griffith’s Writing Competition





Good luck and have fun writing your story. I am sure having listened to and read Andy Griffith’s books, it has inspired you to come up with lots of your own ideas.

New Footy Books

We are so lucky as a parent has kindly donated some great footy fiction books to our library.

The children love all the footy books we currently have in the library

and they are borrowed regularly.

Here are the new titles. They will be catalogued and covered and will soon be available to borrow.
