Reading Week 2019

Reading Week took place in Lucan CC last week, from the 11th to the 15th November, celebrating the magic of reading and how it builds vocabulary, fluency knowledge, empathy and imagination.

There was a daily competition where all students were asked to spot the opening line to a book.

Everyone in the college picked up their books each day for our Drop Everything and Read (DEAR) time during Period 6.

We had two famous authors, Maria Duffy and former principal Jack Harte, visit the college for readings and question and answer sessions to give advice to our budding writers.

We also had a Book Swap facility available where students could bring a book to take a new one.

Thank you to our English department, all teachers for supporting the week and all parents for encouraging reading with their sons and daughters.
