Visiting ISF Waterloo International School Brussels

Imagine a school where kids are from 49 countries speaking multiple languages? ISF Waterloo International School Brussels .

It’s so wonderful. They have a world vision and are making friends from across the globe. It’s the true spirit of a united Europe and a united world. Well, Brussels is the home of the European Parliament.

I spoke to kids from 4 to 16 years about my books. Their engagement and ideas inspired me.

The teachers are from everywhere too – from the visionary head, born in Australia, Belinda Yates – to teachers from USA, Spain, Belgium, Ireland …. everywhere.

It’s such a privilege to speak to young people across the globe.

I'm a writer committed to kids in particular. Adults are good too. Want to bring hope through story to my readers. Awarded an Order of Australia, Lady Cutler Award and a Lifetime International Award for Literacy for my body of work, spreading literacy is really important. I'm head of SCBWI Australia East & New Zealand, patron of Monkey Baa Theatre, Ambassador for the Premier's Reading Challenge, Writer Ambassador for Room to Read ... among other roles. I also love heritage and adapting to enhance the lives of people today, which is why I restored The Hughenden Hotel 1870s and The Residences Centennial Park - the only homes in the parklands which are open now for accommodation, events and lots of nature.
