Sep Only Workshops feature at annual book fest Inspiring author: Kathryn Burnett will hold a workshop at the Words on a Small Island book festival this October. Visit WaihekeBookFestival.co.nz for more information on the festival. To book a seat at the workshops visit eventfinda Writers who want to refuel their creativity can look at the work- shops on offer at the annual Wai- heke Island book festival, Words on a Small Island. The festival takes place during the last weekend of October. All experienced and would-be novel- ists, playwrights and script writers are invited to take part in a workshop run by Kathryn Bur- nett at the Mudbrick Potager Room on October 26 from 10am to noon. Ms Burnett is a writer, screen- writer and development consult- ant who has worked in film and television for more than 17 years. In addition to writing she teaches her popular BrainStorm work- shops and is a script consultant on feature films. Last year she added playwright to her list of skills and produced her play Mike & Virgi- nia with co-writer Nick Ward in the 2011 International Comedy Festival. Book Festival creative director Geraldine O'Sullivan Beere says Ms Burnett's workshop is designed to recharge and refuel the creative brain. Kathryn is inspiring. Her workshops usually sell out so we are really lucky to have Kathryn at the festival. And these are more reasonable -- a special festival price for Waiheke. Over the years many have asked us if the festival could host workshops. So if you have some- thing on the go already or are needing to kickstart your project, these workshops will be useful and inspiring. Kathryn promises brain sweat.'' Another workshop will take place at the Potager Room at 1pm. Waiheke-based Mark Sommerset will be talking about what it takes to self-publish. The author and publisher of children's books like Cork on the Ocean will answer questions about his Dreamboat self- publishing success. Students take on social media Shared learning: One of the stands at the Waiheke Primary School exhibition on social media organised by Totara class. There was a larger than expected turn out for an exhibition on social media organised by the Totara class at Waiheke Primary School. Members of the local board, parents, children, former students, staff members and members of the board of trustees enjoyed the interactive experience put on by the year 6 students to show off what they had learned as part of the school's Primary Years Programme. Visitors to the exhi- bition on Thursday even- ing were welcomed with a waiata and karakia, before the students shared their learning with the guests, teacher Camilla Brotherton says. There was a great buzz around the room and it was fascinating to see the children com- municate their learning with such a range of people, some of them they did not even know.'' She says the most popular exhibits were the large and impressive graffiti art mural that one group of children had painted and which will be displayed at the school, and the short movie clip that another group shared about how cinema has changed over time. The free popcorn that accompanied the movie showing in our purpose- made cinema was also a treat.'' Students made the evening interactive by streaming a live Twitter feed to the audience and many people tweeted on the page saying how impressed they were with the students and their knowledge about mass media and how it can influence the public in so many ways. The evening ended with what Ms Brother- ston says was a very lively'' debate on whether social network- ing sites should be avail- able to youngsters under the age of 18. It was fabulous to see adults and children huddled together brain- storming their ideas about topics like Face- book. All in all, it was an amazing night. All the teachers and the princi- pal were extremely proud of the students and their hard work and itwas ajoyto seethe students own pride in themselves and each other.'' The other students at Waiheke Primary were able to enjoy the exhi- bition on Monday. FATHER'S DAY COMPETITION WINNERS Three families will be enjoying a portrait session with award winning photographer Emma Hughes after entries poured in for a Father's Day competition.

The runner-up was Phoebe Chiquet-Kaan who wrote the most thoughtful entry about her father Bevan, including the line: "I love how he always wants to help me, even before he knows what's wrong, and even when there is nothing he can do." Phoebe wins a portrait session worth $185. There wasn't a third prize but Emma Hughes was so impressed by 17-year-old Joshua Clarke's entry about his dad Neill she will also be awarding him a runner-up portrait session.
