MS ReadathonTeacher's Award

We asked students, parents and staff to nominate a teacher in their school that inspires them.    

We had hundreds of nominations and it was very difficult to narrow it down to just two winners - but two teachers stood out for us. 

First Place

Ms. Grainne McAdam from St. Brigid's Foxrock, had so many nominations from both students and parents alike. Grainne truly seems to inspire her students with innovative ideas, in and outside of the classroom. She encourages them toread for pleasure and have lots of fun along the way. 

Grainne receives a night away for two people, with dinner at Roundwood House, Co.Laois 

Second Place

Mrs. Irene Kelly from St. Oliver Plunkett's BNS in Moate, Co. Westmeath. Another inspirational teacher. Her glowing nomination suggests that Irene has instilled a love of reading into her students, especially in those who might not have been the most confident of readers. Irene wins a night away for two in the Eyre Square Hotel, Galway. 

CONGRATULATIONS GRAINNE & IRENE

The Great Work Award

We asked teachers to nominate the student that they think had made the most effort, or biggest improvement throughout the reading month. This prize is not about the amount raised or the number of books read, but more about the effort and time put in to reading.

Jack Brosnan in Letterkenny Educate Together

Keira Lydon who is in 3rd Class in Cross N.S

Harry Machie  who is in CBC Preparatory School, Cork

Matthew Brennan who is in Rang a hAon in St Brigid's BNS, Foxrock
