Reading for Pleasure

A broad range of reading material (in both digital and print formats) is available in the school library.  We cater for pupils and staff who like to read fiction and non-fiction, periodicals and newspapers.  The lists below are compiled from our book clubs and other pupil recommendations and also contain popular titles. Endless studies have shown the benefits of reading for pleasure.  No one can force anyone else to do it but it is our aim to expose our young readers to great material in the hope that when the right book comes their way, they will be hooked!  When that happens it is a gateway to boundless pleasure for life. 

The Leaving Certificate prescribed and comparative lists are also included below.
