Schools and Clubs

Bill presents an interesting and stimulating program to school groups, introducing the students to a variety of traditional and modern bush poetry appropriate to the age of the class. Students are involved in acting the part of various characters in poems such as “The Bush Christening”. They are given the principles of rhyme and rhythm, which sets bush poetry apart from other forms of poetry, and are shown how to write their own poetry. Bill has a “Working with Children” card, and as father of three, grandfather of ten, and a former Scout Leader, he is familiar with the ways of children.
