All of 5th class under the guidance of Ms. Cheevers worked very hard in creating individual books for the children in Junior Infants.
Ms. Cheevers loved our books and entered them into the Write a Book competition. It took a couple of months for the judges to get back to us though. We were told who won the Write a Book Competition in assembly on the last day of school before the Easter holidays. I really wasn't expecting Mrs. Dempsey to say I won. But I was really happy.
I went to the Write a Book Awards on the 27th of April in Fitzpatrick Castle Hotel in Killiney. I went with my parents and my teacher Ms. Cheevers and the vice principal Mrs. Keyes came too. We were there for around an hour and I received a medal. It was a very nice medal. My mum took a picture of me up on the stage. It was a lovely night and I had lots of fun.
