P7 were given a very special opportunity to work with Melanie Grimsley on World Book day, author of 'Beauty for Ashes'.
Melanie, when aged just 2 was severely burned in a car fire which killed her older sister. She told the children her inspirational story and the children then worked with Melanie to explore the themes of kindness, courage, prejudice and beauty being within.
The p7 children will read the book Wonder as their class novel in term 3 which explores similar themes.
Thank you very much Melanie. @Melanie Grimsley
