IRISH NEWS CRITICAL LITERACY PROJECT
In English, Year 8 pupils enjoyed their student edition of The Irish News every Wednesday for eight weeks as part of the Irish News Critical Literacy Project. The project is designed to deliver news and develop literacy understanding in the classroom. Highlights involved Student Bingo and The Scavenger Hunt which required pupils to compete to find articles on various topics. St. Mary’s was one of just three schools to win a day trip to The Irish News headquarters in June. We are confident that we have a number of future journalists in our midst.
