'Dear Meme, I write on behalf of our Committee, to thank you most sincerely for your contribution to our recent professional development day: “Read, Lead, Succeed.” Our day was a great success, feedback was very positive and this is due, in large part to you, Meme. You were wonderful, warm, friendly, thought provoking … thank you! We are most appreciative of the time and effort you put into preparation, of your willingness to come to our local area and your friendly professionalism, shown in so many ways, to us all. Many thanks and best wishes from all on the Committee.' - A. Shanley, Secretary, The Scots School Albury
'Meme McDonald was amazing in the way she related to the children. She was able to get down to their level and was not afraid to let them know if they were interrupting. As we had just been discussing outback mailmen and the delivery of mail to go with our Bookweek book her introduction of where she lived and how she had her lessons delivered was absolutely spot on and resonated with my class.
'Even though her books are for older children she was able to read part of one to the students and allowed them to ask questions and answer questions throughout the session. All in all a great session which had the children’s attention.' - Sandra, Newman Primary School, Western Australia
