The Book Trust, funded by the Art Council for Northern Ireland, visited our school today. The children met Tola Okogwu.
Tola Okogwu is an award winning British - Nigerian children's author and journalist. Born in Nigeria but raised in London, England, she studied Journalism and spent some years exploring the world of blogging, haircare and freelance writing before returning to her first love... fiction.
The P6 and P7 pupils spent a lovely morning with Tola learning about what inspired her to become an author. As a special gift each pupil received a signed copy of her book Onyeka And The Academy of the Sun.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
