PDST LITERACY CONFERENCE 2015 - UNLOCKING THE DOOR TO LEARNING

PDST WELLREAD NATIONAL AWARD

 

The PDST ‘Wellread National Award’ is a national initiative designed and organised by the Professional Development Service for Teachers (PDST). It aims to create heightened awareness about the importance of creating a culture of reading in school communities for our young people as part of their personal and academic development. The workshop will examine the rationale, the process of application as well as exploring ideas that will support schools in the implementation of such an exciting initiative!
