Junior Book Club

The Junior Book Club is an integral part of life at Maynooth Post Primary School. The club offers students the opportunity to meet with like-minded individuals to discuss a selected book and revel in their shared love of the written word. All 1st, 2nd and 3rd years are welcome to join the club.

The next book that the club will be reading is ‘Clap When You Land’ by Elizabeth Acevedo. We will be meeting at 4.05, Thursday 4th of November in room C42.

Any student who wishes to join the Junior Book Club can seek out Ms. Blythe at school or contact her via Microsoft Teams or email (

Clap When You Land:

“Camino Rios lives for the summers when her father visits her in the Dominican Republic. But this time, on the day when his plane is supposed to land, Camino arrives at the airport to see crowds of crying people…

In New York City, Yahaira Rios is called to the principal’s office, where her mother is waiting to tell her that her father, her hero, has died in a plane crash.

Separated by distance—and Papi’s secrets—the two girls are forced to face a new reality in which their father is dead and their lives are forever altered.

And then, when it seems like they’ve lost everything of their father, they learn of each other.”
