Children’s book author and TV comedy writer, David Lawrence (Commerce, 1982) visited students at St Joseph’s Primary School in Warrnambool with his Fox Swift book series. The TV comedy writer said most of the children were familiar with his Fox Swift books, written with help from Hawthorn’s Cyril Rioli. The students learnt to kick story-writing goals as David took pupils through the structure of building a story plot, including some of his own handy tips and tricks. ‘The students were really interested and engaged and they came up with some great ideas,’ David said. ‘We worked through the process of writing a story. They’re very bright students.’
