The Wellread National Award

The Wellread National Award is an initiative designed and organised by the Professional Development Service for Teachers (PDST). It aims to create a heightened awareness about the importance of creating a culture of reading for young people as part of their personal and academic development. It seeks to involve all relevant stakeholders who impact on student learning including students, teachers, ancillary staff, parents, Boards of Management and the wider Community.  Loreto on the Green has registered for the Wellread Award 2018/2019.
