First Year students at Ennis Community College proudly presented their Make-A-Book efforts to the staff and students of the school recently.

The annual Make-A-Book project is part of the Junior Certificate Schools Programme national literacy awareness and encouragement initiative. This year the students of Ennis Community College created a concept based around the Bronze Age Gold hoard found in Mooghaun.

The book tells the story of a navvy named Flan Considine, who was working on the West Clare Railway who came across a cave. When he explored it further, he discovered a huge gold hoard.

The students created their book by using a variety of artistic techniques and put in a huge effort with their teacher Ms Lisa O’Brien. Students were presented with certificates to mark their accomplishments by Regional Coordinator of JCSP, Mr Mick O’Riordan, school principal Mr John Cooke and Ms Vivienne Grogan, the Programme Coordinator at the school. The First Year head Ms Kathleen Tuohy told the students of her pride at seeing the work and complemented them on their efforts.

The students welcomed the opportunity to express their creativity in such a cross curricular manner and the school is looking forward to more similar successful projects in the future.
