Write A Poem:
All students entered ‘ Write A Poem’ competition organised by the Navan Education Centre. We were very successful this year and two pupils had their poems published in My Europe book which was a great achievement.
We have been very successful in recent years in creative writing, in both stories and poetry. We have participated in a poetry competition run by Navan Education Centre for the last few years. This is for primary schools in Meath and Louth. A book is then published each year with a selection of the entries. We were very proud to have our school represented in both the 2013 anthology ‘School Days are Happy Days’ and the 2014 anthology ‘Wild Imaginings’.
In 2007 and 2011, we were extremely lucky to have author and illustrator OisÃn McGann visit our school. During his visit, he read extracts from his books as well as giving us some great tips for writing stories. He even showed us how he creates his illustrations. Below you can see the drawings he did especially for us!
In Carrickleck N.S. we aim to foster the love of reading and writing from an early age. The pupils in Ms. Fitzpatrick’s room recently created their own book of stories.
