Library News Week Beginning May 20th 2019 (29)
Paired Reading with Central Model Infant School
Class 102 really enjoyed the visit to Larkin Library from senior infants in Central Model Infant School. Our students did some paired reading with the primary pupils and finished up with some colouring, Lego and games. Class 102 took their paired reading task very seriously and were mature, responsible and considerate of the primary pupils they were reading with. Students are looking forward to continuing paired reading next year with Ms Rafferty’s senior infant class in September.
There was a fantastic turnout for the JCSP Awards on Wednesday. Well done to all of these students and especially to those who made lovely speeches. Also thanks to Michelle for all the marvellous baking!Thanks to all the family members who turned up to support the students.
Peel Off The Label
Over 70 students and 10 staff members had the opportunity to see Alex Kennedy’s wonderful, moving and thought provoking Oireachtas Education Ted Ed Club talk in the library on Thursday. Alex first introduced her talk and spoke about how she had been chosen to do the talk, her speech was one of 16 chosen from 350 entries! Well worth watching and sharing.
Arts students premiered their documentary short 'The Avenue' which was made in conjunction with the Gaiety School of Acting, in the school library on Thursday. The short focuses on the positive attributes of our community and the individuals within.
Staff Book Club
The Staff Book Club was held on Friday 25th May during lunchtime in the library. We discussed Becoming by Michelle Obama, Notes to Self by Emily Pine and Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng. Between now and September Larkin Staff have chosen to read a selection from the following suggested titles: When All is Said, A Man Called Ove, My Brilliant Friend, The Beekeeper of Aleppo and Everything is Alright.
