Here in St. Stephen's De La Salle, we were absolutely DELIGHTED to welcome 100 Word Challenge Founder and Curator, Julia Skinner, to our school on the 100wc Emerald Tour in April 2016!
Julia is very passionate about writing and developing a love for writing -
After that, Ms Flynn's 5th Class and Mr. O'Sullivan's 3rd Class joined Mr. Russell's Class and Julia, and they all walked to Mount Sion to meet with Ms Whelan's 6th Class, as well as a number of other classes in Mount Sion. When they had all gathered in the hall, there were over 200 pupils there -
Julia then introduced the prompt for the following week, and took some ideas from eager boys all over the hall. Everyone then wrote a 100wc story! Some of the boys read theirs to the audience, before Julia was presented with a book containing some favourite 100wc stories, and a hurley and sliotar as a memento of her visit.
It was a truly amazing day, to see 200 pupils from our school and from Mount Sion coming together to improve our writing. Thanks to Ms Whelan and Mount Sion for organising the hall -
