Primary Picture Books

This initiative is based on a very successful project in O'Fiach College, Louth. JCSP students link with a primary school class and choose an appropriate picture book to read with the students.

Students practise the skills of reading a book with younger children. The JCSP students are prepared to visit the primary school and each student is assigned a reading partner to whom they read. On completion, each student presents the book to his or her reading partner.

Please enclose in your evaluation a detailed description of the activities undertaken in the running of the initiative along with any relevant photographs. We would be very grateful if the photographs are sent to us digitally. Please make sure that you have sought permission from parents/guardians/students to use the photographs in publications.

Evaluations must be submitted online at
