Literacy Week (Monday 27th Feb – Friday 3rd March)
In Coláiste Muire, we are constantly endeavoring to promote literacy in our school. Our Literacy Week is taking place from Monday 27th February to Friday 3rd March, to tie in with World Book Day, on Thursday 2nd March. A range of activities are organised throughout the week.
A ‘Pop-up Bookshop’ will take place in the Assembly Hall on Wednesday 1st March from 12-5pm. Members of Waterstones Bookshop will be coming to the school with a selection of books, for both students and parents. Students will be able to avail of vouchers worth €1.50 for World Book Day, which can be redeemed with Waterstones on that day. Below are some of the books available to buy, with these tokens.
Other books will be priced between €10 and €15, with special offers and other discounts also available. Parents are invited to come to the school from 4-5pm, to avail of this exciting venture.
There will be many other events and activities for students throughout the week.
Coláiste Muire students completing Young Social Innovator project
As part of the Young Social Innovator competition fifteen students have undertaken the task of building a biodiversity area in the Crúachán woods.We are working in conjunction with Crosshaven Development Committee.
We will be placing bird boxs and bat boxes in the woods to attract wildlife. We have received talks from birdwatch expert Jim Wilson who also walked the woods with us.
We have bought the materials for the boxes and are building them with the help of the Materials Technology Department.
