We are so proud to have received a Highly Commended Reading Inspiration Award from the First Minister’s Reading Challenge!
On Monday we received this exciting recognition during the FMRC event at The Hilton in Glasgow. We took our 10 Literacy Leaders to showcase our reading journey and by request, a “pop up book bar!” We cannot wait to continue our Reading Challenge journey and our focus of Mental Health and Well-Being.
Miss Rothery and Miss Lawrie recently created a brand new role for S2 pupils: Literacy Leaders!
After the success of our First Minister’s Reading Challenge, we were eager to create a special role in which S1 pupils moving into S2 could lead Literacy events, activities and more across the school.
With over 30 applicants and a week long interview process, 10 pupils were selected and given Literacy Leader badges & lanyards. We were so pleased to see so many enthusiastic applicants- it was truly inspirational!
For more information on our Literacy Leaders and how to become one, please visit our department blog and click under the ‘S2 Literacy Leader’ tab! https://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/glowblogs/hillheadhighenglish/

On Wednesday, May 29th, S3 pupils had an excellent day of learning study skills across the curriculum.
In each class they attended, a new method of revision was demonstrated. From flash cards to graphic organisers, podcasts and more, we hope that pupils can apply these study strategies to a variety of subjects!
