World Book Day 2023 πŸ“š

Thursday was World Book Day and what a day it was! The boys enjoyed the thrill of being with other classes and it was a great experience for all. The older boys spent time reading with the Junior Infants, Senior Infants, First and Second Class. In St. Joseph’s, we have always put huge importance on mentoring the younger boys so it was so refreshing to see the boys so animated and excited about World Book Day. The class teachers planned the day to reflect our love of reading and activities included designing book covers, zoom meetings with authors and favourite author presentations. The Book Swap sale was a first and the quality variation and condition of books available was excellent. Obviously, there was the usual complaint of not enough soccer books! It was a busy fun-filled day full of noise, laughter and most of all chat. It was wonderful to hear the personalities of all the boys shine through and watch the connections that were made with the older boys. I would like to sincerely thank all the parents who sent pictures of their boys reading their favourite book .The pictures are displayed in the hall. Here are some photos from our day. Kind Regards, Maria Kirwan
