Congratulations to ALL of our 2017 Write a Book authors!
In this project, every child's book is read by a class at another participating school, and then their Class Teacher selects an author from the class to go to a special award ceremony organised by Blackrock Education Centre. Monday 3rd April was the big night, as participating schools were represented at the annual award ceremony in Killiney.
Congratulations to our 2017 writing ambassadors from 1st, 2nd, and 5th Classes, Rory, Lucy, Saoirse and James, all of whom reported having a wonderful evening, where they were delighted to receive a special certificate from Minister of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Mary Mitchell O'Connor TD. The Minister congratulated all the children and commended them and their schools for their wonderful achievements and for the very high standard of writing in a range of genres.
A special word of thanks to the all the Teachers and SNAs, who put so much time and support into this year's Write a Book project.
The Write a Book project was a huge success this year, as these statistics show:
