On Friday 11 September, Alice Pung visited Ruyton to speak to Year 7 and Year 8 students about her personal journey to becoming a writer. Her latest book ‘Laurinda’ tells the story of Lucy Lam, a clever scholarship student and her experiences within a private girls’ school. It deals with the pressures of teenage life and the desire to fit in, balanced against the inherent cruelty a school culture based around privilege and intergenerational wealth and status.
