Dermot O'Leary visits KGS!

Kirkham Grammar School were delighted to be chosen to host a very special event with one of the UK's best loved broadcasters, X Factor and Radio 2 presenter, Dermot O'Leary yesterday.

The event welcomed 500 children from local primary schools and saw Dermot talk about the two books he has written books for children about Toto the Ninja Cat, a funny animal escapade series. Dermot also spoke about the real-life Toto, rescued by himself and his wife, Dee as a kitten along with her brother Silver. During the afternoon Dermot read extracts from this books and a 'How to Draw Toto' draw along from illustrator Nick East took place via video link.

All the pupils and staff had a wonderful afternoon and were very excited to be given the opportunity to have a group photograph with Dermot! Thank you Dermot for visiting Kirkham Grammar School and giving the children the opportunity to make memories that we are sure will last a lifetime!

Thanks must also go to Caroline Whitmore from ITV Granada for covering the event, Elaine Silverwood at Silverwood Events and Fritha Lindqvist (Publicist).

The photographs are now available to view on our KGS Flickr page
