To celebrate World Book Day in March we ran a ‘Literacy Week’ in Boyne CS. The aim of this week is to try and encourage each other to read more often.
There are a number of competitions and initiatives planned for the duration of the week. Please keep an eye on your year groups Google Classroom Notifications page for further updates.
Below is a list of recommended books for teenagers to read:
1. To Kill a Mockingbird
2. The Outsiders
3. Harry Potter
4. The Hunger Games
5. The Fault in Our Stars
6. One of the Good Ones
7.When Shadows Fall
8. The Silver Chain
9. The Time Machine
10. The Kite Runner
11.Game of Thrones
12. How it all Blew Up
Also as part of this initiative each student in the school has access to a QR code which gives €1.50 off a book of their choice. A poster with this QR code is displayed on the literacy noticeboard in the main hall of the school.
We would encourage every student to utilise this excellent resource.
