Tobar an Léinn is a small 6 teacher primary school located in the village of Raheen, Co. Laois, Ireland.
All of 3rd and 4th class worked really hard on writing their own books for this year's Write-a-Book competition. Some children used their creative imaginations to write narrative stories, and others chose to write interesting information reports. There were all then sent off to be judged. The standard was extremely high! The merit award was awarded to Katie Grant, 3rd class, for her book 'It's a Cat-astrophe!'. Tiernan Donovan, 5th class, also received a merit award for his book entitled 'The Golden Rose' . He attended the awards ceremony which took place in the Heritage Hotel on 15th June.
Those children who received a 'Highly-Commended' award were Chloe Beere, Isabella Troy, Séana Dunne, Christopher Phelan, Leah Bergin and Evan Farrell. Congratulations to you all!!
The children really enjoyed participating in this competition and we consider them all winners! Well done!
