tower-1P4/3 of St Joseph’s were delighted to attend a private screening of the BFG last week at the local Tower in Helensburgh! A particular treat for any child, but for P4/3 it was a fantastic way of bringing to the big screen their IDL for this term – the BFG! Children were able to walk the distance to the Tower and were so excited to have the opportunity. It was an excellent way to witness excellent community planned partnership and the children are all now ready to further their studies of the book – thanks once again to the personnel of the Tower!
