Recently, 1st to 5th classes took part in the Write A Book project with Blackrock Education Centre. 2nd class were very excited to get their books back and we’re very proud of Leon, who was awarded the Merit prize and will collect his certificate in a fortnight’s time at the presentation. Our books were about lots of different topics – from boxing, to animals, to mermaids, to aliens – and lots more! It’s a great achievement to finish these books and we’re very proud of all our hard work!

Some very excited St. Peter’s students with their finished books! Well done to the boys and girls who completed the Write-A-Book project just before the midterm break. We were delighted with the standard of the finished books and we hope that the students are really proud of the work done. This is the first time we have participated in the project and we really enjoyed it. Our books have now been sent to other schools and teachers for correction. We are also lucky enough to have the chance to read the work of children from other local schools as part of the project! One book from each class...
