Mearns Castle pupils become journalists for a day

World Book Day March 2014

To celebrate World Book Day, S1 pupils dressed up as their favourite characters from books and films for a fun afternoon in the theatre taking part in the inter-house Big Book Quiz.

House teams battled it out over six rounds, with Gleneagles eventually winning the glory and those all-important 100 House Points!

Fancy dress winners were also presented with certificates and prizes – with 1st place going to Aimee Logan dressed as a Flapper from “The Great Gatsby”.

All the pupils (and staff) dressed up as a character from a book and took part in a Literacy Quiz in the theatre.

A great BIG well done to the English department and our Librarian Ms McEachern who organised the day.
