Visit of an Author

On Tuesday Feb. 28th, Author Rod Smith visited St. Columba's. As his books are suitable to children of all ages, he visited most classes in the course of the day. He gave very lively, varied and entertaining talks to all age groups, ranging from discussion of his books, which include 'Get Out and Play GAA', 'Padraig Pearse and the Easter Rising 1916' and 'Once Upon a Bedtime', to conversations on becoming an author , while 5th class largely dwelt on the reading materials and authors who engage them.

Feedback from the children was very positive. To quote Brooke 'he brings the past to the here and now'.
