Anne Cassidy Visit

Anne Cassidy's Visit to DPHS

It may have been a belated World Book Day celebration, but no snow was left unturned in inspiring our Year 7s with Anne Cassidy's special visit to DPHS!

Sole author of over forty children's titles, she delivered an entertaining assembly that even got teachers giggling, as well as two writing workshops that sparked imaginations on plot twists and describing "a waiting process". For boys and girls alike, Anne's passion for reading and writing was infectious!

But the day did not end there. Anne was then interviewed for the Debden News Network by her avid Year 8 fans, and informally met students in the foyer at lunchtime whilst signing (and, of course, selling!) her books!

The award-winning author departed Debden's doors with nothing but praise for our "smiling students" and "happy school". Well done to all Year 7s for their exemplary participation!
