As we approach the mid year, depending on which part of the world you reside, students and teachers will be taking a well earned rest.
Those in the northern hemisphere will be embarking upon Summer holidays, sometimes up to seven or eight weeks in length. Here in Australia students will be enjoying a Winter break usually between two and three weeks long.
It is an opportune time to remind students of some of the wonderful Catholic literature that is available for their pleasure. Why not ask them to spend some of their time in reading over these breaks? Now is the time to plan what to read, allowing enough time to get the books before the holidays start.
In a digital world full of distraction, this will be a challenge for many, but students do get bored, and it might just be an idea to throw down the gauntlet to them.
Are your students tough enough to read over the holidays? Do you have any game enough to complete a trilogy?
Here are are few tried and tested classic Catholic trilogies that they might try…
The Lord of the Rings – JRR Tolkien
Divine Comedy – Dante
Kristin Lavransdatter – Sigrid Undset
SWORD OF HonOUR – EVELYN WAUGH
THE TRYLOGIA – Henryk Sienkiewicz
