Scoil Mhuire gan Smál

I recently spent time with the Fifth and Sixth Classes at Scoil Mhuire gan Smál in Graignamanagh and what a pleasure that was. A lovely school and I found the pupils so enthusiastic and so talented. We did a few sessions on character development, opening paragraphs, limericks and general writing and I enjoyed every minute of it. It is a treat to go into a school where the pupils are happy and involved, where evidence of creative teaching is all about the place and where you get a sense of proper learning taking place.  I have seen a lot of this in the primary schools I have visited over the past couple of years. Well done to all of you, Principal, all the staff and pupils. And a big thank you for having me visit your school. I have put up a few of the limericks some of the girls wrote on my School Pages. Hopefully I will get a few more of them (or their stories) in the post!

  1. Wonderful! You are a writer in the true sense of the word; you have a noble mission and it’ll be achieved. Your writing and attendant activites are a powerful change agent. Remember those Irish children getting exposed to and learning about a country and its language far away? That’s change; a seed has been planted, will germinate and grow: change.


  2. Thank you Vukani, you have been a great support.
