Stromness Academy Library

Books, reading and life in a school library

Spooooo…ooooky Happenings!


P1080332Over 20 pupils attended the annual storytelling event that is Spooky Happenings in the Reading Zone of the school library on Friday 31st October. Suitable background music and sound effects was produced by 2Y and 2z in music and played during the session.

Displays of suitably chilling, ghostly and possibly even horrific books were put up and the ‘spiders’ ran amok with their webs to leave the reading zone appropriately decorated for Hallowe’en. Mrs Sinclair, the Librarian started proceedings telling a legend of the Lady of Balcony local to Evanton in East Ross-shire (where she grew up) who was supposed to be a witch, and further linking it with an event which happened to her teenage self and a friend walking home up the glen from the village one dark winter night.

Other pupils and a member of staff also contributed their tales, as well as a few readings from some exceedingly short stories.??????????????????????????????? As the bell for Period 6 (Friday Activities) the pupils dispersed and those remaining for the Dungeons & Dragons / Magic the Gathering activity organised themselves whilst Mrs Sinclair tidied up a bit. Some continued to tell some ghost stories. All in all an excellent and enjoyable session.
