On Thursday June 13th, A&L Goodbody and Business to Arts hosted a Writer-in-Residence event at St. Joseph’s Co-Ed Primary School in East Wall. Pupils, teachers, family members and A&L Goodbody employees were in attendance to celebrate three years of partnership with the A&L Goodbody Writer-in-Residence Catherine Ann Cullen, under the Docklands Arts Fund. Music and songs composed during the programme by the pupils were performed by the pupils and Catherine Ann, with musical accompaniment by Imogen Gunner.

Catherine Ann has worked with 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th class in St. Joseph’s Co-Ed Primary School in East Wall with a view to improving their creativity and literacy skills. Each week, the pupils ‘commissioned’ her to write a poem on a theme of their devising, and the following week’s session opened with that poem. Catherine Ann has helped the pupils to develop creative writing skills, enabling them to express their thoughts and emotions about daily life in East Wall, as well as their dreams for the future. The students work has been compiled into books called ‘Words for Third’ and ‘Suggestions by Sixth’.
