School celebrates Book Week in style
There were age-old characters and modern twists at St Patrick’s Primary School’s Book Week celebrations last week.
Children dressed up as their favourite book character as part of the national week designed to encourage children to read more.
Teachers got in on the act too, with a selection of pirates, bad wolves, paper bag princesses and little pigs all to be seen during the morning’s fun.
St Patrick’s acting principal Andrew Gammon said he was thrilled to see all the children and staff getting into the spirit of Book Week.
“Reading is the foundation for all future learning and it’s great to see their enthusiasm for books,” he said.
