This year we entered the Imaginosity story writing competition, "What's the Story?", with our Senior Infant class. They had great fun brainstorming, drafting, redrafting, illustrating and making a video out of their story, Sam Sandwich Saves the Day.
We are delighted to announce that all the hard work paid off and that they placed 1st in Ireland in what is a very tough competition. They have won €240 worth of books for the school along with membership to ReCreate. In addition they’ll be off to the Imaginosity museum in Dublin for a day trip on June 13th to explore all the wonderful exhibits and receive their well deserved goodie bags. You can check out their video here.
