Got to hand it to the INTO delegates. The can hop, disco, jive, jump and even air guitar with the best of ‘em. The future of our country is in good hands I think. The KPC crew were well behaved as usual and were in attendance purely as neutral observers!

I’m happy to say we are very busy at the conference with lot’s of interest from school up and down the country. We’re a little tired and emotional today as our quiet and reserved (as we thought!) Donegal Franchisee - Lisa - took us on a tour of the delightful nightlife available to all impressionable folk who visit this fair town. She claims to have two left feet when it comes to throwing a few shapes but this scribe saw no evidence of that. Quiet night toinight I hope!

The INTO conference begins on Easter Monday in Letterkenny and we’ll be there to try and make as many teachers as possible aware of our great educational shows. If you’re going make sure to come and see us at the Expo.

Booky Wooky our very own talking book!
Our Reading show - written to encourage kids to rediscover and read storybooks - went down a storm in libraries all over the country during world book week earlier this month.
If you run a library or are simply looking to promote literacy amongst kids, give us a call. I think you’ll find that our reading show - “The town with no stories” - is the perfect way to get kids reading.

Just back from Killarney and a very successful Expo at the IPPN (national school principals) conference. Because of the way it was organised, Thursday was pretty quiet and a lot of us exhibitors were pretty unhappy. But day two was structured better and we had a very busy day indeed. It should hopefully result in our Francisees getting to see lots of principals and booking lots of shows in the coming weeks.
I can’t put Killarney behind me without mentioning the porridge at the International hotel. It is utterly delicious. As a rule, nothing good for you tastes this good, so I suspect there were added ingredients but I don’t want to know. I urge you - scratch the visit to the Taj Mahal off your list of 100 things to do before you die and replace it with a trip to the International for the porridge. It’ll be quicker, cheaper, more satisfying and you won’t get your shoes stolen.
