Read Steady Read Finale

The Ready Steady Read Festival comes to an end with ‘Pyjama’s and a Story’
Read Steady Read Finale

Our Ready Steady Read Festival came to an end on Friday 31st March with our final school event ‘Pyjama’s and a story' day.. All of our pupils from Junior infants to sixth class seized the chance to come to school in their cosiest clothes and enjoy stories of all kinds in the comfort of their classroom. The event was enjoyed by all and was a lovely way to celebrate the end of our festival and the start of the Easter holidays. Check out the gallery below for some photos from the day.

The Ready Steady Read Festival has been a huge success, encouraging our pupils to explore the world of books and nurturing their love of reading. A festival of this scale was only made possible by the tremendous support we received in staging the various events over the six weeks of the festival. Thank you to the Ready Steady Read Festival team, for their hard work in organising and hosting the broad selection of events, to the SET team for supporting the Festival by providing supervision and facilitating the Reading Clinic, the Book Tasting Event and much more, and thank you also to our class teachers for their engagement and encouragement of the pupils with the festival events and supporting them to explore all genres of books. Thank you also to our school secretary, Mary McCormack, and to our caretaker, Brendan Ryan, for their invaluable assistance with the organisation and logistics of hosting the various events and to the Parent’s Association volunteers who gave so much of their time to staff the Book Fair which opened the festival in late February.

And finally, a sincere thank you to all our pupils and their families who engaged with Ready Steady Read with tremendous enthusiasm. Our pupils read thousands of books and their families generously supported our fundraising efforts. The Book Fair and the Readalong fundraiser combined raised a total of €13,312.38 which will be used for the purchase of class library books and digital resources.
