€100 word challenge to promote literacy and numeracy


The school Language Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) Committee have announced the running of an exciting word challenge competition that involves both literacy and numeracy.

Students are asked to use the code to find a word that equals 100 euro or to find the most expensive word.

Teachers have the application forms for the competition in their post boxes.

This campaign may prove of special interest to Maths and English teachers, but equally it can be done within any subject area across the school.

Examples for this could be the biggest, and therefore most expensive, German or French word, or the longest town name in Wales for Geography!

There is a box for completed application forms just outside the Front Office.

Thanks to the LLN committee and Ms Hickey and Ms Byrne for coordinating this initiative.
