Falling in Love….with books!

Love is in the air at Le Cheile Secondary School.  In anticipation of St. Valentine’s day all our students have been sent on a blind date ….with a BOOK!  As part of our literacy programme all students recommended a book to their friend and students have 10 days to read their book before – guess what – they have to offer it up at a speed dating for books event!  On the last day of term all students will have one minute to sum up why everyone should read their book.  Let the lovin’ begin!falling in love with books

Shoeboxes for Christmas

Nina’s Shoebox

Team Hope Shoebox appeal

The Le Chéile Secondary School students are filling shoeboxes to send all the world’s poorest children this Christmas.  It is a lovely opportunity for young people to consider how fortunate they are and to give to those who have very, very little.  All children, no matter where they are growing up, deserve a little joy and we can give them this in a shoebox.  Watch Nina prepare her shoebox:Nina’s Shoebox

Thank you to the Book Haven

A big Thank you to the Book Haven for donating books to our fledgling library.  Here at Le Cheile Secondary School we are very conscious of developing a love for reading among our students.  We have been busy begging friends and family for donations to our library and were absolutely delighted to get this wonderful donation.  THANK YOU! image2image1

Part of the Le Chéile Family

One of the most supportive things about opening a new school under the patronage of the Le Chéile Trust is that we become part of a family of long established and excellent schools.  Recently our principal and two students went to visit Holy Child, Killiney and when our students went to a debating competition they were delighted to bump into some of their Le Chéile “cousins”.  We were also reminded of our belonging to something bigger at our official opening when we were joined by students from other Le Chéile schools.Le_Cheile_Opening_Print-82 Le_Cheile_Opening_Web-44
