Time to Read Programme- A fun day out!


We in Queen of Angels were so delighted to take part in the Time to Read Programme this year. This programme was set up to give valuable reading support to children in the 2nd class. Volunteer staff from ESB Networks come into our school every Wednesday morning to read with 12 pupils. Over the course of the year, the children formed a very close relationship with their volunteers and similarly, the ESB staff gained so much from working with these young, eager, enthusiastic students.

Recently the boys and girls were invited up to the ESB offices and were treated to a truly magical, action-packed day where they got to see what the volunteers’ jobs entailed. They really enjoyed donning hard hats, hi-vis jackets and climbing aboard the large ESB vehicles!
The children were presented with a bag of goodies before they returned to school tired but very happy!
