Carrigaline Community School has achieved the PDST ‘Well Read National Award’, which recognises the efforts of schools in promoting reading and literacy.

The PDST ‘Wellread National Award’ is a national initiative designed and organised by the Professional Development Service for Teachers (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.

It is envisaged that this national award will explicitly foster and nurture a reading culture in schools and will bring about an overall IMPROVEMENT IN STUDENTS’ LITERACY SKILLS IN A FUN AND ENGAGING WAY.

Well done to all involved!
