We had the wonderful author Elizabeth Murray in to talk to our class today. She is the author of The Nine Lives Trilogy. The children really enjoyed the workshop.
Just a reminder that the children need to bring in €3 for this literacy workshop.

On another note, we hope to reschedule our trip to Howth for March/April. I just wanted to let you know that we have the money you paid towards the bus fee (€3) put away for use for our rescheduled date.
