A Cháirde, we are delighted to be celebrating World Book Day in Ireland on Thursday 2nd March 2017. Over the last 20 years, World Book Day has become firmly established as Ireland’s biggest annual event promoting the enjoyment of books and reading. The main aim is to encourage children to explore the pleasure of books and reading by providing them with an opportunity to have a book of their own. This may sound like a very simple idea, but unfortunately, many children do not have access to books in their homes.

Each child in the school has a €1.50 book token. Click on this link to see the 10 books the children can choose from: WBD2017
