The popular children's author Mark Powers visited Burleigh on Thursday 28th September. Mr Powers held a special assembly to read to the children and tell them about the inspiration for his new series of books, Spy Toys. To add to the fun Mr Powers held a toy quiz and a few lucky children won packs of special stickers! The children also had the opportunity to quiz Mr Powers about his life and why he chose to become an author. Some children were lucky enough to meet Mr Powers after the assembly. The visit, which was fun, lively and inspirational, was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.
