‘FUTURE TENSE One, An Anthology of Young Galway Writers’

More than 250 students, parents, and teachers attended the launch of ‘FUTURE TENSE One, An Anthology of Young Galway Writers’. This event organised by Galway Education Centre took place in Radisson Hotel on April 4. 2014. This anthology was launched by Ciaran Cannon TD, Minister for Training and Skills. At this event, Galway Education Centre made a donation of € 3000 to Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin.

Three pupils from Belmont N.S. were lucky enough to have their stories included in the book. Well done!!

Peace at Last

Listen to Miss McGrath read the story of Peace at Last. The children chose instruments to add sound effects to the story. They really enjoyed becoming composers.
