Literacy Week 2019

Literacy Week took place from 1 March 2019 to 8 March 2019 and was filled with lots of literacy events and book related activities.

All first years students took part in the 1Y House Book Quiz which was won by Chadwick17 (L Lynch, J McElligott, E Molloy, A Murphy & C Sharkey) after a nail biting finish. In 2nd place was Dargan5 (T Hoey, A MacMahon, I Millar-Jones & A Winter) and 3rd place was won by (I Moriarty, C O’Driscoll, M Noone & R Shanahan).

The 2Y Spelling Bee was won by Duchesne22 (L Martin, M McCarthy, M Mulcahy & D Nealon). 2nd place went to Barat12 (C Saunders, H Sheridan, S Traynor, L Troy & B Tynan) and Barat11 (AR O’Donohue, A O’Neill, L Patterson, I Quinn, S Rhatigan & G Rowan) achieved 3rd place. At 12.30pm on World Book Day, silence descended on the school as a Drop Everything and Read class was held throughout the school. The meteorologist and author Joanna Donnelly visited 3Ys on 1 March and gave a very interesting talk about her book ‘The Great Irish Weather Book’ and her career as a meteorologist. TY students took part in a Literary Quiz and all 5Y and 6Y students participated in Shakespearean quizzes.

Finally there was loads of interest by staff and students (and some parents) in the Daily Brain Teaser challenges. We had a 5 way tie comprising 3 teachers and 2 2Y students all who had achieved perfect scores. The winner, chosen at random by Ms Caffrey, was Ms Majella Stafford who won a gorgeous Butlers Easter Egg.

All in all it was a very enjoyable week. Many thanks to the Literacy Team who organised all the events and activities.
