Last Wednesday, Peter Gunning visited the school to speak to the 6th class students. Peter is the author of the novel Reaching the Heights, a novel which all of the 6th classes have enjoyed reading this year. Peter Gunning spoke to the children about the writing process, the inspiration for his characters and his thoughts about Reaching the Heights and the other novels he has written (including Stanley!).
Peter also read an extract from the book and used a wonderful Cork accent to add to his dramatic reading! The children asked some very insightful questions and really enjoyed the visit. Thanks to Ms. Murphy for contact Peter to organise the talk.
