Hooray for the heroes and heroines of Our Lady’s Hospital Crumlin. For the last six months children and young people at the hospital school http://olhs.scoilnet.ie have been exploring what makes a hero. Is it muscles, wealth or smarts? Courage, kindness or enthusiasm?

The result is this book in which they reinvent themselves as superheroes, dreaming up adventures and paying tribute to their real-life heroes: the family members and friends who love and support them. What a privilege to have overseen this project along with the wonderful teachers and children at OLH School who have shown me so many tricks of the hero trade.
