On Wednesday the 8th of March 2017, the 1 Beech class got to go to the annual ‘Make A Book’ competition. This year the competition was held in City West hotel in Dublin.
The students along with Ms Farrelly and SNA Mick O’Toole left the school after roll call and got a bus to the venue. Once the students arrive at the hotel they set up their project for display.
The students have spent the past seven weeks working on their project. This year’s theme was mindfulness. Each student designed a tree and a personal silhouette. Each silhouette contained positive mental messages. The group made a short presentation and had an opportunity to answer question about their work asked by the audience. In return the students got to see the work other schools did and to ask question also.
Several other schools from around the country also exhibited their work at this competition.
“We got the chance to go visit the exhibits and students came to see our work. One of the highlights was Gary from Cork a rapper who performed for the group. He got the students involved and turned them into rappers, it was very funny. The next highlight was the lunch of sandwiches and cocktail sausages tea and juice. We spend a very enjoyable three hours at this event, then got the bus back to school. We would like to thank all the teachers and Mick for a great experience”. Pics
