The Book Club, which comprises first and second year students, meets in the library each Monday at lunch time. The group has just finished reading Cool by Michael Morpurgo and really enjoyed the book.
On Thrsday 28th November , the book club visited St Aidan’s Community School to discuss this book as part of our Inter-School Book Club Initiative .
We had a really good discussion about the book Cool with the students from St. Aidan’s. Students from Old Bawn Community School and from St. Aidan’s Community School spoke infront of the group to give their opinion about the book.
There were prizes given to the best speakers from St. Aidan’s and from Old Bawn Community School.
The students also enjoyed some pizza during the trip !
The group also watched a video of Michael Morpurgo talking about his inspiration for writing the book Cool.
Finally, two students from St. Aidan’s gave a superb rap about their school library which impressed everyone.
Thank you very much St. Aidan’s Community School !
