Big Write Event

09 March 2016

Happy World Book Day…

On Sunday 6th March 2016 Ms Khan and her family were invited to the ‘Big Write Event’ organised by the Discovery Centre in Stratford to celebrate World Book Day. The aim of the event was to encourage young people to read, write and draw! The event was attended by star illustrator Tony De Saulles. Mr De Saulles has been illustrating for the Horrible Science series for the past 20 years. His cartoon workshops allow young people to learn some key skills. One of the drawings shows the ‘disgusting digestive system’. On request, this was signed to Leytonstone School by Mr De Saulles.




“I used to be told off at school for doodling and now I get paid for it.” Tony De Saulles
