Yesterday I visited Miss Sirr’s Sixth Class in Scoil San Carlo in Leixslip. It was this class which reviewed The Butterfly Heart for the CBI Awards in May and the review was presented by Amy, Lexi and Laura. It was lovely to meet with them all, to hear their questions and comments on the book and to listen to them sing! So, a big thank you to Miss Sirr and Miss Convery for inviting me and to the students for making the day such a pleasure.
The more primary schools I visit the more I admire the work being done by primary school teachers in Ireland – a lot of energy and commitment amongst the teachers I have come across.
