The 9th Biennial LitFest will feature many special guests: authors, poets, illustrators, performers and newsmakers.
Newington College hosted its first LitFest in 2001, to promote a love of reading within the school and the wider community, and to help school-aged children discover a world of new stories and adventure through the written word.
In 2019 we will be continuing the sessions for schools in the area. Already we have had an enthusiastic response and look forward to welcoming our neighbours to take part in the festivities. This year we will be presenting two Community Events featuring two award-winning authors and performers: Scot Gardner and Sean Choolaburra. Parents are also most welcome to attend this session.
Room to Read
In conjunction with the LitFest the Newington College community will have the opportunity to give the gift of education and literacy to children in third world countries by raising funds for the Room to Read, a charitable organisation.
