MOG Library News

15 February 2016 | General Interest

Author/Artist and long time friend of Mother of God School, Leigh Hobbs has been named as the new Australian Children's Laureate.

He takes over from Jackie French and is the official domestic and international ambassador for children's writing.

Leigh has visited MOG on a number of occasions and has always been a great supporter of children's literature (particularly humorous books) and libraries in schools. We have a number of his artworks in our school.

We congratulate him on this wonderful honour and look forward to enjoying many more of his books.

He was featured in  an article in the Age Newspaper on February 8 and Mother of God School library and its librarian Vicki Gualano were mentioned in a radio interview on ABC Radio National on Thursday 11 February.
