OLS Reading Week 2018

The final week before the midterm break was Reading Week here at OLS. Our One Book One School pick this year was โ€˜Star By Starโ€™ by Sheena Wilkinson, a timely read as 2018 marks the centenary of Irish women gaining the right to vote. The week was filled with brilliant bookish activities, including The Great Book Bake-Off, the Wonder Woman exhibition of inspirational women, blackout poetry sessions inspired by Sarah Crossan‘s #WeAreThePoets campaign, and scavenger hunts in the school library. Students and staff alike read Star By Star during DEAR time each day and we rounded off the week with a visit from the author herself, Sheena Wilkinson.


The first team to crack the Library Scavenger Hunt. This clever pair used their library skills and book knowledge to solve all the clues within the time limit of 15 minutes. Future librarians, perhaps?


Tasty creations.


Kaylin won a prize for this inspired piece of blackout poetry.


The brilliant Sheena Wilkson!
