Pupils take a leaf from fashion book
ST. PHILOMENA'S SCHOOL, Ravenswell, celebrated book week with a fancy dress day in the school.
Each child dressed up as a child from their favourite book.
‘It was to encourage reading,' said Principal Emer Breen, who said that use of the very well stocked library is actively encouraged at Ravenswell.’
One inventive girl, Hannah Adamson in 4th class, wrote a book about Jedward so that she could dress up as one of the wacky duo.
Other characters included Cleopatra, and Anne of Green Gables, and there was a great atmosphere on the day, according to Ms. Breen.
She added that the importance of books is emphasised at Ravenswell, despite the distractions of texting and Facebook.
