Read all about it, CCS Literacy week 2015

Our inaugural CCS Literacy Week entitled “Read All About It” was a huge success and lots of fun!!!

Highlights included a visit from the founders of “Pundit Arena” (Sports Journalism Website), Handwriting classes, Library Visits and a very special Dress Up Day where staff and students dressed as their favourite literary characters. Classroom doors were decorated to mark the event and time was set aside for “Drop Everything And Read” activities throughout the week.

Well done to all involved and here’s to next years Literacy Week being even bigger and better!
