To celebrate World Book Day the English Department organised various activities in school. These included guest speakers. Former staff member Byddi Lee returned to Rathmore to speak to our Year 8s about her experiences as a writer and screen writer Matt Harvey gave our Year 10 pupils an insight into his career path. We are very grateful to Matt and Byddi for taking time out of their busy schedules to speak to our students.
Kelly McCaughrain, award winning author and current Seamus Heaney Children’s Writing Fellow spoke to Year 8 about all things circuses and the importance of being inclusive.
