Educational researchers have found that there is a strong link between reading and academic success. Reading is encouraged from a very early age as a means of developing the mind and introducing children to a vast world of knowledge.
In Gaelcholáite Chomáin we have identified the need for the promotion of reading and literacy. We now have a reading room open to students at lunch time. In conjunction with Junior Certificate Schools Programme (JCSP), we have a wide selection of interesting books available to the students which are updated and added to annually. The books purchased cater for the very reluctant readers right up to our enthusiastic readers.
The room is equipped with comfortable chairs so that students can relax and enjoy reading in an informal setting. The Reading Room is now a busy space for students to develop a love of reading for pleasure.
