PUPILS from Edmund Rice College are putting in an oscar performance in the areas of literacy and numeracy.
Last Friday (January 18), ERC launched a joint collaboration with Movie House Cinemas to reward pupils who had excelled in those areas across the entire school curriculum.
Literacy and numeracy are top priorities in the Hightown school which helps ensure that pupils develop both academically and pastorally.
Wining the first award for this month were pupils Ronan Conn, Matthew McNally, Aidan Quinn and David Robinson.
Movie House managing director Michael McAdam was present in school for the inaugural awards ceremony and stressed the importance of good literacy and numeracy skills in developing his personal communication skills which have helped him go on to employ over 220 people in Northern Ireland.
He encouraged the pupils to ‘dream big’ and to use the opportunities laid before them in ERC for their future careers.
Edel Murphy, numeracy coordinator for ERC expressed her delight at the Movie House Cinemas generosity in donating complimentary tickets to the ‘Pupils of the Month’ in both areas.
She said: “It’s only right for the boys to be rewarded for their hard work in school and what better way is there to encourage them than giving them two free tickets for the cinema. We are very grateful for the support of the Movie House.”
