There has always been a strong emphasis on the development of English in St Laurence's. As well as following the required curriculum there are a number of extra activities that take place throughout the year.
Niall De Búrca, a well known story teller visits the school, entertaining and captivating all classes from Junior Infants to Sixth Class with his gifted delivery of both Irish and international stories.
Throughout the year, classes participate in “The Write a Book” competition organised by the Blackrock Teachers' Centre. This competition encourages all children to write stories in a variety of genres, and enter a nationwide competition.
There are a wealth of stories and poetry on display to be enjoyed around the school.
Well worth a look!
