On Thursday 23rd March 2017 the pupils from Lochdonhead Primary School travelled over on the ferry to Oban to celebrate Alex’s reading for enjoyment success. She has read one million words in six months and was awarded a book of her own choice from Waterstones to celebrate. This award was generously funded by our Parent Council.
This is an amazing achievement and she has read a total of 24 sizeable books to attain this. A big ‘Thank you!’ is extended to the Parent Council for funding the trip and the award.
The pupils all took the time to look around the store and evaluate the choice of books on offer before selecting one or two for themselves and use their World Book Day gift vouchers.
Before heading back to Mull on the ferry we stopped at Wetherspoon where we were well looked after by the staff and enjoyed a lovely lunch.
Learning is always a journey and it is good to reflect on our successes and achievements and for our children and pupils to be active participants in that. Accelerator Reading and the First Minister’s Reading Challenge have inspired our reading journey this year.
“Well done to all our pupils!” and “Well done Alex!”
