Book Week

Posted by Administrator (sadmin) on Oct 22 2015

We're enjoying a fabulous Book Week in the Senior School this week and here are some of the highlights:

  • We've written a school novel called The Magic Glasses where each child in the school has contributed one line to the story. We'll publish it after mid-term.
  • Our 5th and 6th class pupils have been writing Flash Fiction (6 word novels) and we look forward to hearing them
  • Nick Murphy (one of the script writers on Moone Boy) skyped Ms. Nelly's 6th class and spoke to them about how he became a writer
  • Paul Heffernan delivered brilliant sessions on Calligraphy, Storyboard and Character Creations. Thanks Paul
  • Liam Nolan and Molly Cohen – our transition year students – showed the children how to illustrate their books with cartoons. Well done Liam and Molly!
  • Our very own author Thomas Norton spoke to the children about writing his own book – Presidential Problems - and publishing it!!! Signed copies on sale in school for €5 each!

We've had all our usual competitions and our school is full of displays – why not come in and see our Book in a Box and Models in the Halla and visit our Book Fair in the Curriculum Room?

  • Míle buíochas Sharon and Niamh for all your help at the Book Fair. You are stars!
  • Thanks to our wonderful pupils for their hard work and creativity and our wonderful teachers for encouraging reading and the love of books!
  • Our prize-giving will take place on Friday and we also have Dress up Day for Hallowe'en! The excitement is building...
