Loreto Bray goes lit­er­a­ture mad for their first ever Li­brary Day

Bray People - - NEWS -

LORETO BRAY opened its doors to the fu­ture last Fri­day when the school held its first ever Li­brary Day. To cel­e­brate the open­ing of the new­est ad­di­tion to the school, the mod­ern li­brary was show­cased to all and many ac­tiv­i­ties were car­ried out through­out the day.

Guest Ir­ish nov­el­ist Sarah Webb paid a visit to the school and en­chanted the stu­dents with sto­ries from her ex­cit­ing ca­reer. She also played an ex­tra part by judg­ing the high­light of the day - the fancy dress competition. It was a tough de­ci­sion as cos­tumes ranged from Harry Pot­ter to El­iz­a­beth Bennett and teach­ers were highly amused to see fic- tional char­ac­ters roam­ing the cor­ri­dors.

Stu­dents com­peted in a lit­er­a­ture ta­ble quiz and other ac­tiv­i­ties in­cluded speed read­ing, a de­sign a book cover competition and a race to see which year group could do­nate the most books to the li­brary.

‘ The school was alight with en­ergy through­out the day and was a great be­gin­ning to the new li­brary,' said or­gan­iser Deirdre Mc­Don­nell. Hope­fully a few new book­worms were con­verted on the day and ev­ery­one's Li­brary Card will be put to good use through­out the year.
