Literacy – S1 Parents’ Evening

On the back of conversations which staff had with parents at the S1 Parents’ Evening, the LRC and English Faculty thought it would be useful to share some of the tips and reading suggestions which were discussed/displayed last night (Thursday).

We would also like to take the opportunity to ‘thank’ everyone who took the time to share their favourite books with us – there will be a display around the school in the new year.
