Our annual Storybox competition winner was announced at our final assembly of the school year on Friday morning last. The Helena McDonagh Writing Competition is a firm favourite in our student’s calendar.

Mrs.McDonagh taught here in St. Attracta’s for many years before retiring in 2003. As a published author herself, Helena presented the school with a perpetual trophy to be used for creative writing. And so our storybox began. 

Ms. Connaghan who adjudicates the competition every year was very impressed with the number and calibre of this year’s entries. So many giving their all and making a huge effort while displaying their imaginative and creative sides.

This year’s story winner was Síofra McGuinness for her wonderful story entitled “The Two Explorers”. Well done also to Sophie Frizzell and Roisín Casey who were highly commended.

Comhghairdeachas Síofra and to all our wonderful pupils who entered this years competition. Maith sibh go léir
