6th Class Pupils Published

On Friday sixth class pupils from St Dominic’s were invited to a book launch in Tallaght library. ‘Where do you think you are from?’is a collection of stories by 5th class pupils in Tallaght, on their families, that the pupils submitted last year. Not many ten or eleven year olds can say they are published authors!

St Dominic’s N.S. was the winner of the grand prize and four of our contributors received a special prize to recognise the excellent standard of their writing. These pupils were; Alfie, Regina, Susanaah and Jessica. An amazing achievement

St Dominic’s was well represented by 6th class pupils, their parents, siblings and grandparents. There was a great atmosphere and sense of pride in seeing their work on display.

The launch coincided with the annual Culture Night and was a great tribute to the locality and the families from a variety of places and backgrounds that contribute to the success of our school and our area.

Many thanks to Michael, Shane and South Dublin Libraries for letting us take part in the project, visiting our school and having us at the launch. It was a truly memorable experience. Perhaps one of our fantastic writers will launch their own book in years to come.

A limit number of books were printed for the launch. A few will be available to borrow from the library. There may be a possibility of ordering more books, if interested please contact the school.
