Concern Ireland/Poetry Ireland 4 School Initiative


Our School was delighted to host writers from Poetry Ireland, Concern co-coordinators Moira & Camilla, Marion from The School Completion Project, the teachers, principals and above all the children from Holy Rosary, Wicklow, Newtownmountkennedy N.S. and St. Joseph's, Rathnew. After a welcome and photographs the writers settled into 4 classrooms and the 3 visiting schools joined our own children in rotating around the writers for hour long workshops. The writers were inspirational and didn't hold back in sharing their tried and tested tips. As host school our own 5th classes brought their guests together and served cakes, which they'd baked, and other refreshments. The children mingled before retreating to the sun-soaked yard. This was a new format for this initiative and very enjoyable. We hope all our guests had a great day
