Battle of the Books competition
Carndonagh Community Library launched a reading incentive programme for students aged 8-12 years, in partnership with 7 local primary schools in 2012. The purpose was to encourage students to read good books and have fun while competing with peers.
The adopted theme was the ‘Battle of the Books’ - the initial quizzes were centred on books read during the BOB programme, and the students competed against their peers in their own schools. These 'battles' or quizzes took place in Carndonagh Community Library in April.
The next stage of the programme involved the winning team from each school competing against the winning teams of each of the 7 schools participating. The final quiz took place in the library on the 5th June.
BOB was a great success this year and it included in excess of 200 pupils.
The participating schools were:
- Craigtown NS
- Urblereagh NS
- St. Patrick's Boys' NS
- Tiernasligo NS
- Scoil Cholmcille NS
- St. Patrick's Girls' NS
- Scoil Eoghan NS
Scoil Eoghan NS was the winning school of 'Battleof the Books 2012'.
