Ireland Reads – Squeeze in a Read

What is Ireland Reads?

Ireland Reads is a new national event to celebrate reading. Taking place tomorrow, Thursday 25 February 2021, the Squeeze in a Read event is asking people to pledge time to dedicate to reading. Ireland Reads is part of the government’s ongoing “Keeping Well” campaign.

What we did at Cluny

We invited all staff and students to take part in this event. We asked teachers to allow 10 minutes throughout the day for students to select a book and read.

Teachers and students then sent photos of their selected books to Ms. Curtin in the library. Photos were compiled into collage posters and shared across social media.

A wide variety of books were read – ranging from mysteries and adventure to non-fiction history and philosophical books. It was brilliant to see the wide variety of topics and titles chosen by all.

To view the collages, visit our social media accounts where we have shared them.
