 I just finished another year at First Story and saying goodbye yesterday was like the end scene, the moment when the wind changes in Mary Poppins, everyone going their separate ways, singing ‘Lets Go Fly a Kite’…. seriously though, all those hours the kids spent writing, all those poems and all those stories, now have wings and can fly and be shared and read, its brilliant. I’d like to wish all the St Gabriels students the best of luck and massive thanks and good luck to you Miss Meakin!! These anthologies are beautiful, written by 14-15yr old students and then edited by each resident writer, the likes of the wonderful Shauna O’briain, Anthony Anaxagorou and Courttia Newland to name just a few, Please check them out >
