A group from P7 at Castle Douglas Primary took part in the Scottish Book Trust Award 2013/14. Three books were shortlisted for the Scottish Children’s Book Awards and the children read all three then wrote a book review on one of them. A group from P3 also took part in the younger age catagory and, having listened to the stories, also wrote reviews. Several hundred children from all over Scotland took part. K R in P7 was the overall winner in the 8 – 11 catagory and C H P3 came 3rd in the 5 – 7 catagory.
