Students from across Launceston put their heads together and got creative at Riverside High School on Thursday.
Grade 5 and 6 pupils from West Launceston, Riverside and Trevallyn primary schools have spent the past few weeks taking part in the Write Road program.
Once a week, they are given something to inspire their writing, such as a word, picture, or piece of music, and are asked to write something creative based on that idea.
On Thursday, the 45 primary school pupils had the chance to work alongside 20 year 9 and 10 Riverside High School mentors to develop a piece of writing.
Trevallyn student Angus Purtell said so far, he had really been enjoying the program.
“It’s expanded my knowledge of different writing types,” Angus said.
“Usually in class we work on different narratives but we’ve been doing poems and haikus here, which is fun.”
An anthology of the pupils’ work will be published at a Readers’ Cafe in November.
