Literacy Committee Update

This academic year 2021-2022 the Literacy Committe have been behind a number of initiatives and events to promote and embed literacy in Coláiste Pobail Setanta.
At the beginning of the year the committee designed a Blooms Taxonomy questioning resource to be used as a tool by subject teachers during our first SSE support hub week.
The resource was created to link literacy in a cross-curricular manner.
The literacy committee then ran a very successful Literacy week in the college between the 4th of April to the 8th of April.
The literacy committee are currently involved in an on-going project to re-vamp the college library and implement accelerated reader. This project will hopefully be ready by the beginning of the next academic year 2022-2023.
