On Tuesday 15th November the reading schools team welcomed friend of the school, author Alex Nye, into the school library to deliver an author workshop to a group of S1 pupils. Alex’s children’s books are all set in Scotland and they brilliantly incorporate Scottish history and ghost stories into their plots. The S1 pupils listened attentively as Alex spoke of her work and read excerpts aloud to them. The session ended with a quick Q&A which was especially useful for the budding writers in the audience. This fully funded session from the Scottish Book Trust is part of the school’s ongoing efforts to secure reading schools accreditation next year. Thank you to Alex Nye, the Scottish Book Trust and our fantastic S1 pupils.
