Book Signing

Following reading Terence Blacker’s new novel Racing Manhattan pupils in 9C and some members of the Equestrian Team had the opportunity to meet the author at a special event held at Down Royal on Tuesday 18th October.  During the event,  hosted by Paul Clark,  the author spoke about his experience of writing and responded to questions posed by members of the audience before meeting and greeting pupils from various schools and signing copies of his book.  Pupils were also treated to a tour of Down Royal and a special appearance by jockey Karen Ferris who encouraged pupils to follow their dreams.  A great day was enjoyed by everyone.
