The PDST ‘Wellread National Award’ is a national initiative designed and organised by the Professional Development Service for Teachers (PDST). It aims to create HEIGHTENED AWARENESS about the importance of creating a CULTURE OF READING in school communities for our young people as part of their personal and academic development.

We have decide to read Touching the Void by Joe Simpson as part of this initiative.

The PDST ‘Wellread National Award’ is an initiative that seeks to involve all relevant stakeholders who impact on student learning including STUDENTS, TEACHERS, ANCILLARY STAFF, PARENTS, BOARD OF MANAGEMENT AND WIDER COMMUNITY in a range of reading and associated activities.

It is envisaged that a national award will explicitly foster and nurture a reading culture in your school and will bring about an overall IMPROVEMENT IN STUDENTS’ LITERACY SKILLS IN A FUN AND ENGAGING WAY.
