Our 6th class are very lucky to be part of the Bookmarks Programme which is a collaboration between Trinity Access, the Library of Trinity College, and the School of English in Trinity College. The programme sees primary school children from their partner primary schools in Dublin write and illustrate their own books over a period of two months. This is facilitated through the support and guidance of authors, artists and children's literature specialists. The programme culminates with the publication of these books in an exhibition in the Old Library of Trinity College. The project aims to inspire children to become the next generation of storytellers and artists - in short, to tell their own stories and imagine the future.

We have a new library team in OLOL. This is a very important group in our school. We are one of the luckiest schools in Dublin to still have a school library. It is incredibly well stocked with books, fiction and non fiction.
As it is used so much we need a group to keep it organised.

Pupils from 5th Class are making a monster movie with Helen. Their film is inspired by genre films like Godzilla. The film includes props, costumes and different puppets made by the pupils with help from Helen and Tony the school caretaker. The story is about littering and the dangers of children drinking energy drinks.

Junior infants had an amazing first session of Creativity in the classroom with artist Liz. 

The children explored the charactistics of clay and developed their understanding of textures by using various objects to make marks and patterns in their piece of clay. 

3D shapes were also explore as the children learnt different skills to use in order to mould their clay into various shapes. 

What a wonderful start to their Creativity in the classroom sessions and looking forward to the next few weeks.
