Author Matthew Fitt Visit Monday 4 March 2019

We were delighted to welcome Matthew Fitt to school on Monday 4 March, when he encouraged our S1s to explore the languages around about us in a fun & dynamic way.

What a lively, interactive session all enjoyed with him! Their rendition – in Scots – of Just The Way You Are by Olly Murrs was a highlight.

This fabulous session included Matthew’s translation of the story of the most famous wizard: Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stane. One of our pupils, Connor, enjoyed being Harry Potter and everyone enjoyed the lively quidditch game in the hall.

“Harry, yer a Warlock.”

Books and stories were shared during this session for all in our S1 cohort.

India & Zeynep bought books and Matthew signed these. There were happy readers all round.

This visit was supported by Live Literature Funding from Scottish Book Trust.
