Crystal Cove donates to Good Shepherd

crystalcovepresentationThe Good Shepherd Primary School recently received a much needed boost for its literary programme, Reading Under the Stars, from Crystal Cove Hotel.

Miranda Fergus, coordinator of the programme, explained that this was the second year for the competition, which allows students the opportunity to create and perform poetry and prose, as well as display posters.

“The competition is open to all age groups at the school and it is very rewarding. As we all know, reading is not always a first option in this time and so Reading Under the Stars seeks to encourage students to read more and to show the importance and link between reading and writing.

“We cannot thank Crystal Cove enough for coming to our assistance again this year. We were eternally grateful for their assistance last year as it allowed us to reward the students who participated with some fantastic prizes. This year has been no different as they have been just as generous and we want to say a big thank you,” Fergus said.

Crystal’s hotel manager, Sophia Babb, explained that the hotel had a long standing and rewarding relationship with the school and was always happy to be of assistance

“We are especially pleased when we can get involved with projects such as the Reading Under the Stars, which is a positive programme for our youth and can only serve to assist them in developing good habits that will serve them well throughout life,” Babb said.
