A Day in Secondary with Nick Toczek

  • Author visit
  • Author visit

On Tuesday 3rd of October Compass Secondary School hosted a visit by the author, poet, magician, puppeteer and journalist Nick Toczek.  He spent time with Years 7, 8, 9, 10 and 13 giving them an insight into his experiences as an author of political/historical books about human rights, a columnist for a music magazine and how his wife takes photographs of the concerts he writes articles about.  He also read some of his poems for the classes and initiated writing tasks for students to take part in.

In between he enthralled students with magic tricks involving cards and coins, which fascinated the students, especially Year 13, who were keen to learn how he did such sleight of hand.  Nick has visited many schools all over the world and has worked with Primary, Secondary and adults conveying his love of life and writing.  His books were also on sale and he was delighted to sign them personally for the students.
