In January, classes all over the South East took part in a poetry competition. The prize was to get your poem published in a book called Imagine. There were five winners in the school which was a great achievement. The winners were: Winner- Freya Little. Second- Alex Hackett. Highly Commended- Julie Clarke, Leah Harte and Shauna Kennedy. The only Gaeilge poem was by Julie Clarke. The launch of the Imagine magazine was on Saturday the 14th June in Tallow. The library was small but we all had a lovely time.
