Cork Comic Creators

By | 2017-11-16T21:05:48+00:00 October 21st, 2017|Class of 2018, Class of 2019, Photos|0 Comments

Our 5th and 6th classes had the most wonderful time in the County Hall today with the Cork Comic Creators team.  They learned all the stages of Comic making and had an opportunity to practice their skills during a workshop.  They also went up to the very top of the County Hall and debated motions in the chamber like real politicians!  A great day was had by all! 👏🏻
