The senior classes in our school had a very special visitor today. Colm McElwain, who is a local children's book author came and spoke about his new James Clyde book. Colm shared many tips on how to approach creative writing and making writing fun and interesting. The boys and girls got the opportunity to ask him lots of different questions about his books and how he became an author. Many thanks Colm for your visit!

All of the classes in St. Brigid's National School were busy this week preparing for Grandparents Day, which we celebrated as part of Catholic's Schools Week. Each class created some lovely artwork showing their appreciation for their grandparents. We held a prayer service on Wednesday in celebration of this special day and we had a question and answer session afterwards with some of the grandparents. A huge thank you to Sr. Rita for assisting with the prayer service and also to everyone who attended the event. Here are some pictures from the day..

Third and fourth class have been learning all about report writing and have wrote their own book. We each picked an animal that we wanted to know more about and then used the laptops to do some research. We wrote some fantastic reports on different animals such as dolphins, tigers, polar bears, parrots and wolves. We found out lots of interesting facts so we decided to put them all together in a book. Here are some pictures of us at work.
