Our younger children in Pre-Prep 3, Lower and Upper Prep (Years 2 to 4) enjoyed meeting Ross Montgomery, author of books for all ages, from the picture book Ten Delicious Teachers to The Midnight Guardians and Tripwrecked, a skit on Shakespeare’s The Tempest. They loved hearing all about the adventures of Space Tortoise!
