Children’s Books Ireland
Every Child A Reader, Winning Schools
We are delighted to announce that we have won a place on an exciting library project called Every Child A Reader: Reading Communities project run by Children’s Books Ireland and funded by The RTE Toy Show Appeal.
We had to compete with lots of other schools and complete an application and take part in an interview. Only 4 schools in the whole country were chosen for this.
The judges said we are a wonderful school. They choose us because we proved to them that we already do so much to support reading. In the interview they said we showed a passion and enthusiasm for books, and a commitment to nurturing a love of reading in our students.
As a winner in the project we will have a writer or illustrator as our Champion of Reading working with us over the next three years in our shared goal to make Every Child A Reader. We have been incredibly lucky to also receive 1000 books for our library. We are really looking forward to involving EVERYBODY in our school community (including parents/nannies/grandads) in this project.
