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.

Our Book Week Scotland events were rounded off by a visit from author, Joan Lennon.
Our S1 pupils listened carefully as Joan talked about her passion for writing and her obsession with stories. Joan explained that she is a messy writer – no neat character, setting and plot planning when she writes!
A final ‘thank you’ to Joan and Iona (Waterstones) for coming to Bell Baxter to help finish a busy Book Week Scotland.
Wednesday and Thursday saw staff and pupils joining the LRC for the “Book swap” event as Book Week Scotland almost draws to a close. Everyone in the school has had the opportunity to swap a book they’ve already read for a new title – bring a book to get a book! A number of people, staff and pupils, have gone home with new books to read.
Friday sees this year’s Book Week Scotland activities rounded off with a visit from author, Joan Lennon.
Our Book Week Scotland celebrations continued on Tuesday with a “Cake, coffee & books” event for staff. Staff enjoyed the opportunity to get together over coffee and cake during lunchtime. The event also saw Waterstones, St Andrews bring a pop-up bookshop to the event. A fantastic way for us to deliver a book event for our staff.
A huge ‘thank you’ to everyone who came along to support the event; to the bakers (LRC and English Faculty), and to Iona from Waterstones, St Andrews.
