Top Ten Blurbies

Cat in the Hat

Once again the Blurbie Design Competition has proved a great hit. If you click on the Cat in the Hat above you can see 63 of the entries for Book Week 2015.

The TOP TEN (the observant among you will see that there are actually 11 as we had a tie for 10th place) were voted for by Tutor Groups. Congratulations to the winners, of course, but well done to everyone – staff and pupils – who took part. Once again, the Blurbies made a fantastic display in the English corridor.

Book Week 2015 – Monday 14th – Friday 18th September

Book Week 2015

BOOK WEEK 2015 begins on Monday.

GET INVOLVED!

This year’s SPONSORED READ is in aid of READATHON which supports four fantastic children’s charities.  Check the link for details : https://vimeo.com/90217681

There will be free drinks and snacks in the school library during lunchtime for those taking part in the SPONSORED READ. Tutor Groups have the option to sponsor their Tutor. You can even suggest which book your Tutor should read during BOOK WEEK.

All S1 pupils will be able to take part in the annual BOOK BADGE HUNT. Members of staff, library assistants and some senior pupils will be wearing badges with a picture of both a book and its film. There will be prizes for those who collect the most book and film titles.

To win a prize in the WRITING COMPETITION, all you have to do is write a book or film review OR review a book and its film and say which you prefer and why. Check out the POSTER for details.

BOOK WEEK would not be the same without the DRESS BLURBIE COMPETITION. This year, the challenge is to dress Blurbie as a character from a book or a film. Forms are available now from your Tutor and from the school library.

Get involved, have fun, and remember: READING IS FOR LIFE, NOT JUST FOR BOOK WEEK.
