The English Department & the LLN value the benefits of reading at Lucan Community College. We are aware that the humble book regularly competes with the myriad of digital entertainment surrounding our students. This is why we invest time in our Reading Week each year. This week students & staff are getting the opportunity to Drop Everything And Read each day and take part in some competitions.
A healthy air of silence permeates the school during DEAR Time each day as we stop whatever we are doing & escape into our books.
We look forward to some more DEAR Time during the year. Competition winners will be announced next week.
Our Reading Week themed Wise Saying of the Week is: “The book to read is not the one that thinks for you, but the one which makes you think“.
Thank you to the English department for spearheading this wonderful event and to each and everyone of our school community who have embraced it.
