Well Done & Thanks !
Well done to all the students who were involved in the visit of Darren Shan to QES on Wednesday (22 October).
Whether you performed at the event, or were in the audience, you helped to make this a special occasion that Darren himself really enjoyed.
This is what he tweeted just after leaving us:
From Mrs Holman
Next Wednesday, we're delighted that QES will be visited by one of the most popular young people’s authors around today - Darren Shan.
We feel very privileged that Darren Shan is flying in specially from Ireland to speak to our students – a unique event for our school!
Known as 'The Master of Horror', Darren Shan has written a number of extremely successful books, some of which have been turned into major films.
His books include The Saga of Darren Shan (beginning with Cirque du Freak) and The Demonata. His latest books are the thrilling Zom-B series - just look at the selection of covers!
Darren Shan will be giving a talk to our students during lessons 3 and 4 next Wednesday, 22 October.
We are inviting all Year 8 students and fans from other years to attend what promises to be a brilliant talk.
Helping to add to the drama of the event, students from the Theatre Arts and Music Departments have been preparing work that promises to make a surprising and exciting contribution!
Students will also have the opportunity to ask Darren Shan questions and to purchase a copy of one of his books at a discounted price which he will sign personally.
Alternatively your son or daughter can decide if they would like to buy a book on the day. Fans of Darren Shan can bring their books from home to be signed by him if they wish.
We hope students will enjoy this special event.
