Following on from my visit to Loreto Beaufort I also visited Kings Hospital School in Dublin – both visits courtesy of Joan Kelly who is librarian in both schools. The First Year group in Kings Hospital is 140 big! But, once again, many questions from the audience and a lot of these were on child marriage throughout the world and its impact on girls as well as boys.
They were a fantastic group and a big thank you to Joan for setting it up. One of the things I love about going to schools and libraries is seeing how so many of this generation are interested in the world out there, how many of them care and, perhaps most importantly, how many of them have their minds wide open to learning.
Her are a couple of pics – one from Kings Hospital and the other from Loreto Beaufort.
