I’m very much looking forward to this annual MARC Literature Festival, this year hosted by Marysville Primary School. MARC = Mobile Area Resource Centre = mobile library. This MARC service is now operated out of Merrijig and covers about 16 schools (don’t quote me on that, but there are a few). Eildon and Buxton students will bus in to join Marysville students in a day-long literary festival.
It’s wonderful to trip out of town, and to meet students from smaller, more remote schools. It’s my last school visit for the year and it’s always a highlight. This year we’re trialling longer sessions, because we always seem to run out of time! Looking forward to it.
