Author Presentation

Risa is a Year 11 student who wrote and illustrated a children’s picture book which she titled, Benny Bilby’s Wish. This book was published in November last year.  Risa read her beautiful book and spoke to the children about being incredibly motivated by Australia’s dwindling bilby population. 

Students really enjoyed the book and the opportunity to learn more about the environment and endangered species from a young lady who is so passionate about these great causes. 

Risa’s book aims to raise awareness of the plight of the bilby, Australia’s most endangered marsupial.  To help and learn more about bilbies like Benny, please visit

Benny Bilby’s Wish was available for students to purchase on the day with all proceeds going to the Save the Bilby Fund.  To order a copy of Risa’s book, or for more information, you can email Mrs Christy on
