Following the launch of the Professional Development Service for Teachers (PDST) Wellread National Award, the PDST would like to invite teachers to attend a one hour information session taking place in Education Centres around the country. We also invite schools wishing to put themselves forward for award in October 2016.
The PDST Wellread National Award aims to create heightened awareness of the importance of the creation of a culture of reading in school communities for our young people in their personal and academic development. It will involve all of the stakeholders, including students, teachers, parents, Board of Management and the wider community of a particular school in reading and associated activities.
The information sessions will outline the registration process and will give insight into ways in which schools might explicitly foster and nurture a reading culture in their school.
- Information sessions will be held in local education centres in May 2015 to support schools wishing to take part in this exciting initiative.
