World Book Day/Library Trips


We celebrated World Book Day 2024 by dressing up as our favourite book character. Each class completed a range of World Book Day themed activities including creating book marks and designing book covers. The book fair visited our school and pupils had the opportunity to purchase a book of their choice. During our whole school assembly we talked about books we are reading, we looked at the new Gaeilge books purchased for our school library and we celebrated reading for enjoyment.

We celebrated World Book Day 2023 by wearing comfy clothes to school as we promoted reading for enjoyment on World Book Day. It is wonderful for our pupils to be part of this worldwide celebration of books and reading. Pupils enjoyed ‘DEAR’ time where they had to ‘Drop Everything and Read.’

Our 3rd and 4th class pupils enjoy two termly visits to Dunboyne Library. The aim of these visits was to encourage pupils to engage with their local library, to develop a love for reading and to understand how to search for books in the library. Pupils really enjoyed these library visits.

We participate in organised library events. Our 1st and 2nd class enjoyed a visit to Dunboyne library for a workshop with a children’s author and illustrator.

We had a guest speaker from Kilcock Library visit each class to tell us about their library services. We also would like to thank Kilcock Library for the Junior Infant Welcome to School book bags for our incoming Junior Infant class.
