Wellread Award 2018
This year we are hoping to complete the Wellread Award here in Youthreach. The PDST ‘Wellread National Award’ is a national initiative designed and organised by the PDST. It aims to create heightened awareness about the importance of creating a culture of reading in school communities for our young people as part of their personal and academic development.
We began our Wellread journey back in October. Drop Everything And Read is a designated slot on our timetable where students and staff take the opportunity to read a book, magazine, comic, graphic novel. Our students now have the option of using e-books and audiobooks through their iPads.
We have visited Galway City Museum and just recently picked out books in Easons for our library. Students from various classes have been contributing to the Headline of the Day board. This has really helped us focus on current news stories in our world.
