A CHILDRENS author paid a visit to a primary school in the town. 

C.S Clifford, author of the 'walking with' series, visited The Marist school in Ascot to give a talk about writing and the importance of literacy. 

Following his talk, Mr Clifford gave a series of workshops for the girls in years 3-6, which focused on different themes including advice on how to improve creative writing techniques and ideas for stories.

The 'Walking with Big Foot' author spoke to students about his passion for storytelling and his sources of writing inspiration in his assembly talk. 

Vice Principal Mrs Jane Gow said: “The girls were excited and captivated by Mr Clifford’s gift of story telling and have been inspired to explore different genres both in reading and creative writing.”
