“There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate’s loot on Treasure Island.” — Walt Disney   

The excitement around the school in recent times has been palpable in preparation for our Book Week. Doors have magically become library shelves, teachers delighting in displaying what they are reading, murals with samples of guests work and our ‘Read Wall’. This is a mere snippet of the work done by our teachers and students led by our Wellread committee consisting of staff, students and parents.

We look forward to welcoming Billy Roche, Jackie Cahill, Brendan Cummins, Fr Padraig Daly OSA, Edward Hayden and Caroline Busher to GCC in the coming week.

Please come back for updates and photos from our numerous workshops and activities throughout the week which will include;

  • Book dating
  • Spelling Bee
  • script writing workshops
  • presentations from our guests on poetry, biographies and fiction amongst more.
  • book tasting for all year groups.
  • much, much more
