Drop Everything and Read- another success!!

We are so pleased that Drop Everything and Read was another success!! It was incredible to see staff and pupils across the school stop and enjoy reading after such a busy term! A special thank you to Mr Santi who delivered a hilarious radio-host tannoy! Bravo!!

World Storytelling Day

We believe in the magic of storytelling! In honour of World Storytelling Day (March 20th), pupils completed various story-related activities across the department. Many were linked to our First Minister’s Reading Challenge focus: Mental Health and Well-Being!
