-          Drop everything and read. Every day from 12-12:20 we all drop what we're doing and read a book for 20 minutes.

-          Writing competition. Winner receives a €100 voucher for Dundrum. Theme this year is: RAGE

-          Riddle me this…..everyday an original riddle is given to the students. Each winner receives cinema tickets.

-          Maths Challenge: Students must solve real life problems using only the world around them.

-          The perfect circle - Can anyone make it?

-          Scrabble competition

-          Countdown competition

-          Bring a book - buy a book! We receive books from you, we sell them back to you and all funds go into the library or we might even put your donations straight onto the library shelf.

-          Lastly, our student will dress up as a fictional character for a day - Wally? Spiderman? Spongebob?

Tell a story that keeps you up

Solve a riddle, measure a space

Write a story, you'll never replace

So get involved and get stuck in

Literacy, numeracy, is where it all begins
