Today was absolutely marvellous! After a great story-time session with a wonderful class group of Junior & Senior Infants from the Claddagh National School, we were treated to another very special guest!
Alan Early came to Dubray Books in Galway and entertained, informed and completely mesmerised three separate classes of 5th and 6th class students from St. Patricks School, St. Nicholas Parochial and Claddagh National School. All the students were lively and engaged.
Not only did Alan read to them from his books (Arthur Quinn and the World Serpent and Arthur Quinn and the Fenris Wolf), but he quizzed them on Viking lore with his own quiz, Who Wants To Be A Viking God or Goddess, and talked to them about writing, how to flesh out your characters by creating a facebook profile for them (very good idea), publishing and the River Poddle (among many other things ancient and Viking.) Extremely interesting....
way, if you are following the 'head count', we had exactly 150 students
come through today. That brings are total for the week so far to 267!
BRING IT ON!
