The children from the junior room made a trip to the local library today where they enjoyed a reading from Santa Writes Back by Eilis Tracy. Eilis Tracy is a local author based in Castlebar. This is her first book, which is a collection of interesting letters that Santa writes back to children in different situations. The final letter is one for all the children in the world carrying a message of love. The letters are heart-warming and meaningful. The book is beautifully presented with colourful vibrant illustrations. Eilis gave a charming reading to her attentive audience. All the children joined in a Christmas sing a long which was a lot of fun! Eilis presented a signed copy of her book dedicated to the children of Cloonlyon NS. Santa made a surprise appearance with letters for the children and a goody bag to bring home. Thank you to Sean McCann for getting all the children safely to and from the event.
