Yesterday we were thrilled to welcome students from Kilnamona Primary School, all the way from Clare, to the Story Hub. First up to try their hand at creative writing were a group of fifth and sixth class boys. Their love for the world of hurling certainly shone through in their writing! The exciting end result was an adventurous tale entitled ” A Paddys Day to Remember”. The story was based around Jameson, a Kangaroo who also happened to play hurling. Jamesons’ arch rival was the Tipp center back – Sullivan, a huge hairy gorilla! It was fantastic to see the boys weave their own interests into their story
The Kilnamona girls were up next, and had a lot to live up to after the boys stellar performance. However I am happy to report these girls did not disappoint! Their sassy tale was christened “Jeffalicious” and was based on a romance between Jeff the Chicken Burger and Susie the Rapping Wrap. (Minus the sweet chilli sauce!!)
A huge thanks to the students and teachers of Kilnamona. Ye were a particularly brilliant group and we would love if you all payed us a visit again sometime in the future!
