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.
