Award winning author, Sally Rippin will visit Tenison Woods College on Thursday 19
September for the 2019 Reading Hour event. As Australia’s highest selling female
author, Sally is well known for her Hey Jack and Billie B Brown series (amongst other
popular titles) and is a passionate ambassador for reading and literacy.
During her visit at the College, Sally will present a session for Reception to Year 2
students and Year 3 to 5 students. She will also spend time visiting classrooms and
meeting students over the course of the day. The College is looking forward to hosting
Sally and listening to her read to students.
“We are extremely fortunate to have Sally visit us, particularly on such an important day
of the year for literacy. It’s an incredible honour to host such a talented author at the
College for Reading Hour,” says Early Learning to Year 5 Key Literacy Teacher, Katie
The Australian Reading Hour event is a national initiative that encourages all Australians
to devote an hour of time to reading. At Tenison Woods College, the Junior School will
participate in the Reading Hour from 9:00 - 10:00am before having the opportunity to
meet the highly acclaimed author.
Already a house hold name for many families at the College, Sally will be sure to leave
an impression on the students after her visit. With a passion for storytelling, Sally
emphasises the importance of reading for young people, “Reading is a vital component
in developing empathy and fostering compassion in young people. I am delighted to be
involved in the Australian Reading Hour for 2019. I never tire of the thrill of listening to
children talk about why they love a particular book or character. I love writing and sharing
stories. My hope has always been that my readers will see themselves in my stories and
understand that no matter how confusing or frightening the world may seem at times,
kindness, friendship and integrity always win out in the end.”
