Oliver Phommavanh loves to make people laugh, whether it’s on the page writing humour for kids or on stage. Last Friday he did just that when he entertained our Year 5 and Year 6 students with his antics. Oliver used his teacher and stand-up comedian experience to bring out the funny side of writing. Students found out where story ideas come from and how easy it is to write wacky and silly stories. Oliver was a huge hit with the kids, and kept them (and teachers) laughing all the while. Most Importantly, he managed to convey his love of reading to the kids, encouraging them to be avid readers, and enjoy writing.
