A TITANIC SHOWING AT THE CBS
THE ‘Spirit of The Titanic’ was well and truly brought to life at St Mary’s CBS recently as the school’s literacy group hosted a special Titanic themed day as part of the ‘One Book, One Community Initiative’. The students had been reading Nicola Pierce’s book ‘ The Spirit of the Titanic’ and they aimed to explore different aspects of the Titanic’s story using different subjects. This meant that it was not just a matter of historical significance, but, for example, the science department carried out a fascinating study on flotation and buoyancy which correlated with the tragic story of the ship’s maiden voyage.
The students linked in with two Enniscorthy Primary School’s - St Senan’s and St Mary’s -along with the active retirement to create a fascinating day where they presented their projects and findings. Members of local community were invited to come in and take a look at some of the projects in the school library and there were some impressive findings.
This was just one of the school literacy group’s events as the school aims to achieve a ‘Well-read Flag’ for the school. Among the other events that have taken place in recent months were a readathon, a poetry and short story competition and the foundation of a book club and the idea is to create a culture of reading throughout the whole school community.
