Laughter is the best medicine

Poet Paul Cookson recently visited St Cecilia’s Catholic Junior School, where he had the children and staff splitting their sides with laughter as he performed a selection of his poems.

Paul later ‘officially opened’ the school’s new library which has been transformed by parent helpers, staff and donations from St Cecilia’s children.

The school library adopted a ‘spooky’ theme, to coincide with Halloween, for the grand opening and parents, grandparents, staff and even the site manager volunteered to tell a story during lunchtime for all the children.
Andrea Lea said: “We also had a visit from Jan McVerry who visited two Year 6 classes to share with them some top tips for writing play scripts.

“Jan talked about her childhood and what inspired her to write, she also promoted the importance of ‘reading for pleasure’.

“The children of St Cecilia’s were impressed when Jan showed off her BAFTA award.

“All agreed that it was a great week!”
