“Dr Cameron's visit was such a huge success!  We were so impressed with Dr Cameron's high interest content and delivery. Our students across the school had excellent engagement from start to finish. The activities were short, on-point & motivating. The afternoon Masterclass achieved deep focus with a 'Writers Atmosphere' to extend our budding writers. We are sure this experience will be a significant moment in their schooling that will leave a lasting impression.

"Cameron, I am an LSA and work with a student (male 10 yrs old). He has found connecting with text impossible. When you came to Macquarie Primary School and talked to the 3/4 group he was so excited that he sat on the floor for your entire hour, which was HUGE! He had decided on a question two days before and when you pointed at him and he got to ask, "Why do you have fairy tales in your stories?" And you answered him with a full explanation he sat up straighter, again, HUGE! He talked about it for most of the next day."
Learning Support Assistant, Macquarie Primary School, ACT

Thankyou for all of your assistance throughout and please let us know when bookings start for next year as we definitely want to have him back!" Junior School Teacher, Brisbane Boys' College, QLD

"I just wanted to say a big thank you for such a great day when Cameron visited Wellington Christian School. The students are still talking about the visit . My K-2 class loved the workshop with Cameron and love the Stroogle books. Every time I get them out to read I hear their enthusiasm. My daughter, in Year 6, went to the extension workshop with Cameron. She has a real passion for writing and wants to be an author. Cameron not only gave her guidance and direction about her stories but inspired her even more. I can hardly get her to stop writing now! On the day of the visit I had two student teachers with me in my class, both were very impressed and asked about the books, workshops and website. So thank you once again for such a great day." Teacher, Wellington Christian School, NSW


"I just wanted to thank you for a fantastic author visit on Monday.  The pre-visit preparations were efficient, friendly and professional. It was because of this attention to detail that the visit went so smoothly and was such a huge success. The teachers and I were very impressed with how Cameron engaged all the students and catered his presentations perfectly for the various age levels.  The children thoroughly enjoyed the workshops and remained engaged for the full session.  It was a wonderful way to encourage the enjoyment of reading, writing and drawing. We certainly intend a repeat performance either this year or early next year." Teacher Librarian, Our Lady of Mt Carmel Primary School, QLD


"We have had Cameron visit our school on a number of occasions and they have been a fantastic experience every time. He offers a variety of workshop options. Cameron's flexibility in his presentations means that his programme can be tailored to your specific needs which means great relevance to school/class curriculum priorities. His rapport with students is fantastic! Our students still talk about Cameron's lunchtime handball competitions and his books just will not stay on the shelf in our library. Cameron's ability to bring out the creative side of everyone, even those of us who feel we don't have a creative bone in our bodies, has been reflected in the work of our students. Cameron inspires students to imagine, explore and believe in themselves." Head of Curriculum, Bethania Lutheran School, QLD


"Thank you so much for your help when Cameron visited us.  All of the classes and teachers saw it as a very valuable experience and really enjoyed every moment.  If fact they were so impressed our year three teachers are very keen to have Cameron visit them." Curriculum Coordinator, Mudgeeraba State School, QLD


"It was a great experience for the students.  After Cameron showed the Yr 4 and 5 classes how to draw interesting animals, for weeks that followed, students were trying their own.  The books were a great success and are always popular for borrowing each week - can never find any on the shelves. I would recommend Cameron for any workshop from Prep to Yr Seven. Cameron kept their interest for the whole session." Teacher Librarian, Coomera Springs State School, QLD


"Thankyou so much for organising Cameron's visit.  The children were absolutely enthralled throughout the entire visit, and one of our most wriggly boys sat with his mouth open in wonder!  Cameron really has a lovely rapport with the kids. Thanks again." Teachers, Kimberly Park State School, QLD


"It was wonderful having Cameron in our school to share his unlimited talents. The kids had a great week." Assistant Principal, St Mary's Primary School, QLD


"I just wanted to let you know that Cameron was great on Monday. All the children from all the different year levels loved listening to his stories and listening how the books were made. He has inspired a new generation of authors which is great. Please let Cameron know that we appreciate him visiting the school and taking the time to share his knowledge. Thanks again." APRE, St Flannan's Catholic Parish School, QLD

"Our students loved Cameron's visit. I was in the P/1/2 class and his audience was enraptured. Apparently the Year 6/7 boys, who are generally "too cool" for anything , were hanging on his every word. Seemed to be enjoyed by all students. I was interested to see his original art works. I am glad we were included in the tour." Principal, Anakie State School, QLD


"A few days before Dr Cameron Stelzer arrived at our school we brainstormed what we thought his book The Stroogle's New Home was about. Then we read the story. This story was shared at a perfect time because our class is talking about our local environment and how we can reuse, reduce and recycle. When Cameron arrived we got to create our own recycled shoe cars from the story! We all had a great time and enjoyed making decisions for ourselves about how each car would look. We loved our time with Cameron and would recommend a visit to any school.” Stage 2 Students, St Joseph’s School Murwillumbah, NSW


“Last week Dr Cameron Stelzer, the inventor of the Stroogle, came to our school. It was amazing! Dr Stelzer showed me and the whole school the adventures of Stroogle. He even taught us how to make our own story. I got to make two stories! It was fun having him at our school and it was a great experience. It made me want to be a writer myself.” Stage 3 Student, St Joseph’s School Murwillumbah, NSW

"Our students loved Cameron’s visit and many parents took the time to say how much their children talked about the visit at home! I will certainly recommend him as a visiting author to any schools in our area." Teacher Librarian, Caroline Chisholm Junior School, ACT


"Recently Cameron visited my son’s school. My lounge room has been filled with books since the visit! Lachlan has started writing and illustrating his own books……wow! Thank you for awakening my son’s love of reading again!" Parent, Calamvale Community College, QLD


"I have always found that Cameron has an excellent rapport with the children and parents. The workshops are always well run and well planned and they are always popular at our libraries." Young Peoples Librarian, Logan City Council Libraries, QLD
