Each year several classes from St. Fergal’s are invited to attend a creative writing workshop called ‘Fighting Words’.
It was set up by Roddy Doyle and Sean Love and is run by volunteer authors and illustrators. Children work collaboratively in a fun setting to create a storybook unique to their class. Each child gets a copy of this storybook to take home.
In 2018 St. Fergal’s school was invited to be one of four schools in Ireland taking part in the Big Story Project and was featured on RTE’s Nationwide programme. (for more information go to www.fightingwords.ie)
