Laureate na nÓg
Laureate na nÓg Eoin Colfer’s, National Storytelling Tour, Once Upon a Place, visited our school Scoil Mhuire, Taghmon last Wednesday. Two storytellers, Dave Rudden & Grainne Clear spend the day with us, telling stories, reading poems and giving the older classes practical advice and tips about how to improve their own creative writing.
The visit was instigated by Callum Greene, a sixth class pupil, who had written to Laureate na nÓg in response to a national initiative requesting schools to be part of the Once Upon a Place Programme. Callum’s entry included information about our school and why he thought such a visit would be worthwhile and an enjoyable experience for our school community.
His efforts were rewarded and the big day came last Wednesday when Dave & Grainne along with co-ordinator, Nessa O’Mahony, arrived to be greeted and welcomed by Callum on behalf of the school. It was a wonderful honour to be included as part of this tour. It was very much enjoyed and appreciated by all. Many thanks to Callum and the Laureate na nÓg team.
