Storymaking In Schools

In May and June of 2005, Kildare’s resident storyteller, Susie Minto, visited primary schools in Athy, Caragh, Celbridge, Ticknevin and Halverstown, Kilcullen.

Storymaking sessions were held, with children participating in the storytelling process through Susie’s unique methods.

The aim of these sessions was to inspire children to:

  • Develop a love of stories and storytelling
  • Develop Listening Skills
  • Gain confidence to explore and interact during the storymaking process
  • Recognise the power of the imagination
  • Encourage independent reading
  • Promote literacy in the home

Following the success of these sessions, the School Library Service hopes to develop a similar project in 2006. Further details will be posted.
