Furnace and Minard  Reading is fun 1 Pupil councilThe children in the Mid-Argyll pupil council have been working together over the last few months to organise a ‘Reading is Fun’ event.
They ran two competitions, one for children in 1st level and one for 2nd Level to come up with a book character to encourage reading in these age groups.

The pupil council chose the winning entries, ‘Book Buddy’ by Morven McIver in P3 from Lochgilphead and ‘Reading Rhino’ by Drew Buckley in P7 from Tayvallich.

These drawings were turned into soft toys and presented to the winners at our Reading is Fun event at Lochgilphead Library on Friday the 4th of March by our Education officer, Kathryn Wilkie.

A book quiz on children’s books was also organised to raise money for the toys and it is hoped that every school in Mid-Argyll will have a pair.

The next event organised is a workshop for children in P4 and P5 by children’s author Emily Dodd in the Campus on the 31st of March.
