Welcome To The EA Library Blog

The dynamic, diverse and dizzyingly active centre of the school.

Connecting you with information, events, activities, banter, support and more.

The library is literally a great place to be!

Mrs Toonen, our librarian, welcomes you to our library, which is a vital part of EA.


 Our Countdown to Christmas Reading Challenge is EA Book Bingo.

Pupils should pick up a card from the library desk and #rEAdforChristmas.

Names will be entered into a draw and pupils can win brilliant books from the HALF-PRICE Book Fair, which will be in school 10 – 17 December.

Our Countdown to Christmas Challenge is all about completing a line of 5 across or down. Bingo!

 Pick up our Book Bingo Card and #rEAdforChristmas💜📚🎄🌟


On Thursday 5 December, in the library, we welcomed our guest, award-winning writer Kirsty Logan.

This was a wonderful writing workshop with Kirsty Logan and unleashed creativity! Higher English pupils talked, wrote and shared their work with each other and with Kirsty. This was a fabulous Live Literature Session supported by Scottish Book Trust.

Robyn read her work and so did Angus and all enjoyed hearing them share their ideas during the wonderful creative writing workshop. There is lots to take forward in class with Mrs Bodiam in the English department.

Thanks to Scottish Book Trust for Live Literature Funding.

In other exciting news…

On Thursday 5 December  we welcomed award-winning writer Kirsty Logan to school.

On Friday 5 December, we are delighted to say that Kirsty has said yes to supporting the group & will bring others to the project too.
