Class 1M visited a school in Jobstown yesterday where they sat and listened to Andy Mulligan author of well known novels such as ‘Trash’ and ‘Ribblestrop’.
He talked about his time in the Philippines and the children he met that inspired some of the characters in his book ‘Trash’. One boy in particular was the inspiration for the character ‘Rat’.
After the hour long talk the class got to sit and chat with Andy. They asked some of their own questions. At the end he signed all of their books.
The class will continue reading and studying the novel ‘Trash’ with their teacher Ms McEvoy and Ms Maguire.
