PDST ‘Wellread National Competition’ was won this year by Loreto College. This is a national initiative designed and organised by the Professional Development Service for Teachers. 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.
Loreto Swords have been awarded with a Flag and Certificate for their hard work in involving all relevant stakeholders who impact on student learning including students, teachers, parents, Board of Management and the wider community in a range of reading and associated activities. They have explicitly fostered and nurtured a reading culture in the school which will bring about an overall improvement in students’ literacy skills in a fun and engaging way.
