St Patrick's NS hosted its annual Scholastic Book Fair in our school from 24th - 28th October. Thank you to all the children and adults who made this celebration of reading a huge success!
The Book Fair was hosted in the Reception Area this year with hundreds of fantastic books, and something for everyone to enjoy. As our school will receive free books as commission for every purchase, this is always a great opportunity to add to our library and classroom resources with brand new books of all genres.
ENORMOUS thanks to parents of 2nd Class and 4th Class, as well as Library Committee volunteers, who manned the stalls over the full week, with a special ‘THANK YOU!’ to the Class Liaison Reps who organised the rota, set up early each morning, cleared away each afternoon, and also managed book orders, etc – always with the warmest of good humour and cheerful spirits.
We hope that you all enjoyed the week – and that you thoroughly revel in the delights of your new books!!
Finally, I am delighted to report that purchases this year totalled a whopping €2,623.65, from which we will receive €1566 in free books for our library!
