Philip Caveney visits Bell Baxter

We’d like to take the opportunity to ‘thank’ Philip Caveney for coming to the school yesterday to talk to our S2 pupils. Philip came to the school as part of Book Week Scotland celebrations with the support of the Scottish Book Trust.

Philip talked about his work and how he became a writer.  His message was that he didn’t wait until he was older before starting to write…his writing life started when he was at school.

Philip asked the pupils if they too sometimes sat and stared at a blank sheet of paper searching for inspiration – he reassured them that he too often suffered this fate.

Well done to David and Keira, two of our S2 Reading Heroes, for introducing Philip and proposing the ‘thanks’ at the event.
