'Make a Book' Presentation in Dublin Civic Offices

On the 13th of March St.Mels, along with Patricia Tansey, Emeka Congo, Miceala Harrison, Dami Willams & I went to Dublin City Council, Civic Office, Wood Quay for the Make a Book Exhibition. All of the students who attended the presentation had worked hard over the last few months writing their own book with the help of our resident author, Mia Gallagher. Schools from all over the country presented their books, expressed their creative side and showed what they can do.

In the exhibition hall, St. Aidan’s had designed and made a giant wheel that spun for you to pick the story you would like to read.

Conor Murphy from St.Mels didn’t write a story but instead his rap was displayed at the Dublin City Council. There was a stereo beside our wheel that played Conor’s rap. It attracted a lot of people to the display and kept them laughing and smiling.

During the exhibition there was a quiz and we were encouraged to wander around the exhibition and artwork to find the answers and write them on your sheet as you went along. The prize was an ipod shuffle and I think St.Aidan’s did very well!

After the exhibition we went to Pizza Milano for lunch. We got pizza and lasagna; it was so filling there was no space left for dessert! It was delicious!

A special thanks to our resident author, Mia Gallagher, for helping our talented young students to create their masterpieces! It was an extreme pleasure to have her in the school and we would love to see her again. Also thanks to Shane Murphy for coming along and being our photographer.

Thanks a million to Mr.Connaughtan and Ms. Flynn for chaperoning us on the trip. We are all greatly thankful. Thank you also to Miceala Harrison for helping type this report.
