Books, reading and life in a school library

S1 Writing for Publication


All S1 pupils visited the library today (Thurs 10th May) along with their English teachers and SfL assistant to work on the We are Writers project. This outcome of this project will be a book of writing (poetry, plays, stories, etc) which will be made available for sale. Proceeds will go towards the purchase of books chosen by the pupils themselves for the school library which will boost stock and support the reading programme S1 pupils follow.

One wouldn’t believe that nearly 60 pupils were working across the lower and upper library as they were all quietly focused on their writing and uploading it to the We are Writers website. Those who had finished went on to help with designing a cover for the book, thinking about a launch presentation, and helping with proofreading.

They will return to the library for another two periods next week to continue with this work.
