Stagecraft Poetry Festival 2017: 18 pupils from Harold Boys’ N.S. represented the school at the recent Festival. All of them took home awards including 7 medals. This festival has been running for over 20 years and attracts more than 700 entries from over 20 local schools. The ability to perform a poem in public helps instil confidence, self-esteem and communication skills. These qualities are more important now than ever. Well done to all.

Green Schools: We had Linda and TJ from the WSPCA in to talk to us about their work at Sharpeshill Animal Sanctuary. We heard about some of the abandoned or poorly cared for animals who had been taken in by the sanctuary and brought back to full health. TJ brought in Jinx, a dog who had been abandoned but who TJ now looks after and is really happy. We’d like to thank TJ, Linda and Jinx for their visit! We also attended Environment the Musical at the Lexicon Theatre, Dún Laoghaire. The musical told the story of Millview Park and its litter problem. It highlighted a lot of what we learned during our work on the Litter and Waste theme and the performances by Monkstown Park Junior School and Rathmichael Primary Schools were excellent.
