The irrepressible Dave Rudden made a visit to Beaufort on Tuesday of D.E.A.R. week. Such was his energy, that the hall of 300 students spent an hour erupting in laughter. He took us on a rollercoaster ride of a talk through strange encounters on the way to buy crisps and being bullied mercilessly in school. The topics ranged from whimsical to serious but always with wit and humour. The audience of 1st, 2nd and 3rd Years were treated to some writing tips along the way too that they can use in their own writing for school and beyond.
