Year 8 Readon

Year 8 Readon 27th September – 1st October

Last month all Year 8 pupils took part in Dalriada’s annual sponsored Readon. Pupils were encouraged to read as many books as they could for their own enjoyment and also to raise funds for the Northern Ireland Cancer Fund for children. As part of the Book Week celebrations Year 8 pupils set out in very chatty, long crocodiles to Ballymoney Library where Mrs Tweed, the Librarian, told them how they could access the many services the Library offers and entertained them with stories and poems. There was a Book Fair for all Key Stage 3 pupils in the School Library too. In 2009, Year 8 raised £ 2,070 during Book Week – we are looking forward to hearing the sponsorship total this year!
