On Wednesday, 14th of June, the children and staff of Holmpatrick N.S. were thrilled and delighted to have the famous author and artist, Don Conroy, visit our school. Most parents will remember Don from his drawing show “Drawing with Don” that was on The Den!

Don spoke to the children about his childhood and the inspiration behind his art. He told them how he used to spend hours doodling and drawing.Don starting drawing at the age of four.  The children really loved listening to Don and his stories and he drew some fantastic pictures to be hung in the school.

Don was a real gentleman and a pleasure to have in the school.

Many thanks to Don for giving his time in visiting our school and thank you to the parents association for organising this visit! We wish all Wednesday’s were like this! 🙂
