Time to Read 2019 at St. Kevin’s!Posted on 8th April 2019
We are delighted to say that the Time to Read programme is taking place in St. Kevin’s once again this year. This programme provides children in second class with reading support from a business volunteer. In our case, we are very fortunate to be linked with a great group from Zurich in Blackrock, led by Caroline and Michelle. This reading programme aims to increase our pupils’ fluency, enjoyment and confidence in reading – and gives pupils individual time and attention each week thanks to the dedicated volunteers. It was a great success again this year – and our class library, school library and local library are busier than ever thanks to the efforts of all involved – and there are even unconfirmed reports of pupils reading under the duvet after lights out! We would like to thank all at Zurich for inviting us to their offices again this year and Alessia has put together a wonderful video to capture all the action from a great day!
