All classes stopped on Friday 13th. December between 11.15 -11.50 am. Class 4 was given over to Whole School Reading. This was reading for pleasure, reading to encourage further reading, reading to open up the imagination. All that could be heard throughout the school was the rustle of newspapers and the turning of pages in the many books being read. This novel idea was instigated by Ms. F. Gallagher and is hopefully a new chapter in the literary history of The Sem.
