Literacy and Numeracy

As well as being naturally integrated into all subjects, many Literacy and Numeracy initiatives take place in Donahies every year.


Spelling Bee 2015

This year’s Spelling Bee took place on Wednesday 6th May in the canteen. It is an initiative to improve the spelling ability of all first years that is rolled out in their English classes about 6 weeks before the event. It was a very successful day this year with all first years taking part in what was a very close competition. Well done to all of the winners, hard work really does pay off! I would like to thank all of the fourth years who helped out on the day, it was much appreciated. You can view our Spelling Bee pictures here.
