Another Successful Book Week!

Book Week at Wandesforde National School continues to be as successful as ever. This year, Irish author, Liam Farrell visited our school during Book Week to further support the children’s interest and enthusiasm in literature. Below is just a glimpse of Liam’s fun and interactive workshops with the children!

Liam impressed the children in the Junior Classroom with his wolf costume!
