"Our students thoroughly enjoyed their visit from Timothy Bristow. He is an engaging and inspiring speaker for students of all ages. ‘Billy the Brilliant’ is a wonderful book and discussing it with the author brought its message of resilience to life. Timothy’s personal stories about individuality and chasing your own dream will stay with the students for a long time. It is of particular benefit for boys to meet a sporting role model who also has a passion and ability for writing. The magic show that Timothy’s students put on added to the excitement."

"Timothy Bristow visited our school to talk to our students about being an author and to share his book, Billy the Brilliant. The students ranged in ages from 5 – 10 years and they were totally engaged throughout the presentation. The main messages, of chasing your dreams and the importance of resilience, made an impact on all of the students. It was great for the students to see that authors can be “everyday people” who even play AFL! Our Year One students were inspired to write their own stories about chasing a dream and we are so excited to hear the connections they are making with Timothy and his book to their stories during this process."
