Premier's Reading Challenge 2017 (Issue 12 2017)
Written on the 17 August 2017
Ambassador of the 2017 Premier's Reading Challenge in SA, Juliet Haslam, visited Sacred Heart College on 15 August. Juliet spoke about her career as an Australian hockey player and her love of reading. She also brought her two Olympic gold medals for hockey in the 1996 Atlanta Olympics and the 2000 Sydney Olympics. The parts we found interesting were her achievements in both the 1996 and 2000 Olympics, as well as the Commonwealth Games and the hockey World Cup Series. We learned that Juliet loves to read with her children, Jed and Mitchell, at night, which reminds her of her childhood and how important reading is for everyone. The whole experience was fun and exciting, and an enriching learning opportunity for all of us.
