Annual book swap was a huge success
SCOIL Chonglais held its second annual Book Swap Shop on Wednesday 4 - Thursday 5 December.
The event was a huge success as all students brought in a book from home that they were willing to swap for a new book from a classmate. The books were collected and sorted in advance by Transition Year students and on the day each class had a chance to browse through the selection and choose a "new" book.
The event was supported by Blessington Book Shop and Carlow Book Station. Each bookshop set up in the school, with a selection of books at discount prices available for students to buy.
Next week Scoil Chonglais will hold a Reading Week during which all students bring their book to school and have one class a day devoted to just reading.
