'Head over Heels' Winner!

Congratulations to Phoebe Reid who has had her story chosen by the Children's Writing Fellow of Northern Ireland Myra Zepf to be illustrated at a special event this April!


In February P6S had a class visit from the author and The Children’s Writing Fellow for Northern Ireland Myra Zepf. Myra discussed her ‘Head Over Heels’ programme and ‘upside down’ creative writing.


Following Myra’s visit P6S wrote their own creative stories along with hundreds of other pupils across the country. Phoebe Reid in our class created ‘The Scaredy Prince and the Daring Princess’ which was subsequently chosen as one of Myra’s favourite five stories. As a prize for her writing the class has been invited to the Seamus Heaney Home Place Centre in Bellaghy on Monday 16th of April.


The Laureate na nÓg – PJ Lynch – will be there along with 4 other illustrators. They are:

Margaret Anne Suggs

Tarsila Kruse

Peter Donnelly

Andrew Whitson


Author Dave Rudden will also be there to act as narrator of the stories, as the five illustrators illustrate the stories live.


Well done Phoebe! frown
