Sixteen other schools, Primary and Post-Primary, from all over Ireland, took part in the scheme, writing stories, poetry and drama, all on the subject of child labour.
A gathering of the students was held in the Dunamaise Arts Centre, Portlaoise, where they shared the fruits of their creativity. Our pupils performed an excerpt from their play and received a standing ovation fron the audience.
