Last Thursday we received very exciting news that Mark Schwarzer, goal keeper of the Socceroos is coming to visit us at SMOT!!!
This is all thanks to Matthew P in 4VL who loves both soccer and reading. Matthew reads the Megs series by Neil Montagnana-Wallace and Mark Schwarzer. It is about Edward “Megs” Morrison, a boy who leaves his home in England to move to Australia with his parents and soccer is a way he finds to settle into his new home and make friends. These books are great reading for boys and girls who love soccer. Visit the Megs Morrison website to find out more.
Matthew entered a competition to get Mark Schwarzer to your school. He collected as many signatures as he could and sent them in with a letter. Matthew received a phone call from Neil Montagna-Wallace to tell him he had won!!! Congratulations Matthew and thank you for your wonderful efforts. What a fantastic example of great things happening to people who read!
On Friday, June 19th we will be visited by Neil and Mark who will do the media launch for their fourth book in the series called “Megs and the Complete Left Foot”. Mark will talk to the whole school as well.
You will be able to order pre-order your book for Mark to sign on the day by sending your order and money to the LRC.
Don’t forget to congratulate and thank Matthew for entering and winning the competition…
