The 2021-22 CBC School Journal Cover Design Competition is now up and running. This competition is open to all CBC students who now have the opportunity to design the cover of this year’s School Journal. The pandemic is a challenging time for everyone but every cloud has a silver lining! One of the positives of the lockdown is that it has given us all a time-out, time to look at things differently, to re-evaluate, reflect and reframe our perspectives.
Your entry could be a photo, drawing, painting, etc. anything that you feel would bring life and meaning to the 2021-22 Journal. See the image attached for the space it will occupy. Entries can be submitted by email to email@example.com or handed into the office with your name and class attached. The winning entry will receive a €100 voucher.
Closing date is 5pm on Friday April 30th!
Best of Luck!
Ireland Reads is a new campaign from Irish libraries, Children’s Books Ireland, NALA, booksellers, publishers and others to get the whole country reading this month in the lead up to Ireland Reads Day on Thursday, the 25th of February. The aim is to get everyone to pledge to ‘squeeze in a read’ on the 25th of February, Ireland Reads Day – whether that’s reading a book, a newspaper, a comic – whatever works. All over the country, libraries and partners will be holding events and activities online in support of Ireland Reads. Wouldn't it be great to get the whole school community involved and pledge to read! It would be great if as many of you as possible can take photos of you, or anyone in your household (including your pets), reading a book and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please visit www.irelandreads.ie, where you can let them know how long you’re going to read for.
