The fifth and sixth class girls are currently reading “City of Fate” by Nicola Pierce as part of “One Book, One Community.” The story is set in Stalingrad in Russia during the Second World War and follows the lives of a number of children. It is an excellent book which has everyone completely engrossed in the story and there are some fantastic class discussions. Michael Moylan came to the school with his war artifacts and with his wonderful style and  really brought everyones understanding of the story to a new level. Being able to hold the replica equipment and wear the clothes was a great experience. Our thanks to Tom O’Gara, HSCL, for organising the visit by Michael.
