One book, one community- Sky Hawk

Sky Hawk by Gill Lewis was the chosen book for the One Book One Community Project 2018. The girls in fourth and fifth class in North Pres. read this book along with other children from other schools including Blarney St., St Vincent’s Primary, St Vincent’s Secondary, The Mon Primary, The Mon Secondary, The AG and Gaelscoil Pheig Sears. Ms O’ Brien’s class did many extra activities associated with the novel including projects and artwork. A number of girls participated in an art workshop with their parents where they made paper mache birds. There was a quiz held between all the participating schools in the area. Our Sky Hawk adventure ended with a celebration in the Blackpool Library. All schools were in attendance and performed musical and poetry numbers. This event was also part of Cork’s Lifelong Learning Festival. The girls’ projects and artwork were displayed in the Blackpool Children’s Library for the fortnight over Easter.
