A PORTMARNOCK school was celebrating recently after winning a reading initiative competition.  

The St Marnock’s pupils were among 180 children from six schools in Fingal -St Patrick’s NS, Skerries, St Nicholas of Myra, Kinsealy; St Marnock’s; St Colmcille’s NS, Swords; Mary Queen of Ireland NS, Rivermeade; and  St Margaret’s NS -  who gathered at the Riasc Centre, Swords, to attend the final day of Battle of the Book competition. 

The programme, sponsored by Dublin Airport and organised by Fingal Libraries, is designed for primary school children and aimed at encouraging them to read more, by using a multi-disciplinary interactive approach that includes drama, art, creative writing and an active competition element between the schools.
