News2day visit our school

Last Friday, News2day visited us because they had heard about how much we love to read and in particular, to interview Nathan from Sixth Class, a keen reader himself!

As Nathan told assembly today, he had recently decided to find a new author’s work and found himself reading the Irish author Darren Shan and his Vampire Fiction. He says he was hooked by chapter three of Shan’s book – Cirque du Freak and has since become a big fan. Recently he wrote to Shan and today Nathan read out Shan’s letter in reply. Nathan advises against ever ‘judging a book by its cover’ and always to try new authors as you never know what you might find. Nathan thanked in particular Ms. Judith for the support and inspiration she gives him every day.

We are very proud of Nathan and look forward to more updates soon!

Well done to Fifth Class who won the title of Greenest Class in RNS for Jan/Feb. Huge thanks to Mr. Gillespie and his students who work hard at saving energy every day by recycling properly and switching off lights and appliances when not needed. They also have been very busy mentoring the younger classes and are very positive with their praise. Great work as we near our second Green Schools flag for Energy….
