As part of the Laureate na nÓg initiative, 5th and 6th class, along with Ms Corry, attended a Writers and Illustrators Workshop in Glór with renowned author Eoin Colfer and illustrator, PJ Lynch. During the day, the children were instructed to invent an evil character and the school was presented with a charcoal drawing of Matthew Butt's character 'Jerry The Diamond Tree'! Maith an fear Matthew!

Even though I'm still relishing in the delights of mat leave, I couldn't but help share this wonderful piece. Perhaps there are are few pointers to help us gently along our role as parents. I know there are many which resonate with me and shall become my intentions for the year ahead for a wonderful 2017. Im definitely on the learning curve as a parent (!!😁....Thank Goodness routine is restored this morning!) and anything that can help me along or instill a bit of confidence in my daily actions...I love to share with others. Enjoy...Sheena
