There was great excitement in St. Paul’s last week during our annual Book Week. The children spent time browsing and buying books from the huge selection of books on display in the PE Hall. We were also very lucky to have the award winning children’s author Benji Bennett visit the children from Junior Infants to Second Class. Benji had lots of fun meeting the children, reading his books, signing autographs and he even taught the children a song from one of his books. The children (and staff!) thoroughly enjoyed Benji’s visit and some were eager to know when he’d be visiting again, before he’d even left the school! We finished the week off with the children dressing up as a character from their favourite book. As well as having lots of fun, we also raised over €5,400 which will be spent directly on books for the children’s libraries in their classrooms and for the main library. Thank you to everyone for their support during the week.
