This year was our biggest World Book Day yet led by our PTP!
With the help of their families, our children made, recycled and reused their costumes and looked absolutely amazing!
We had 15 parents / grandparents volunteer to read to our children. We were especially fortunate to have parents read stories that represented the various languages and cultures of Greystones Community National School. We had readings in English, Gaeilge, French, Russian, German and Dutch. We also had one of our amazing 3rd Class children volunteer to read in Hungarian!
The children really enjoyed the stories and the variety of languages. We are so lucky and thankful to have such wonderful parents, guardians and grandparents who helped make this our best World Book Day Celebration yet!
Our two 1st Classes were invited to Halfway up the Stairs in Greystones to meet Gerry Daly, the illustrator of Where Are You Puffling? Gerry read the €1.50 version of Where Are You Puffling? to the two classes and walked taught them how to draw a puffling. He was also kind enough to give each class a signed illustration of a puffing which are now proudly on display in the two 1st class rooms.
