Ghillie Basan – Book Week Scotland

Ghillie Basan The ‘Original Spice Girl’

Thursday 30 November at Elgin High School

Our S3 HE pupils, with Miss Ainslie and Mrs Toonen, enjoyed a fabulous opportunity to meet writer, broadcaster & food expert Ghillie Basan. We were all gripped by Ghillie, in an exciting workshop, preceded by her stories of her travels, which were wonderful to hear.

Two Elgin schools were Twice as Nice as Spice and we all learned lots and had a good time too. The spices were glorious!

Thanks to Ghillie Basan and to our hosts, Elgin High School Library and librarian, Mrs McLean.

Our joint project with Elgin High School Library, Home Economics department and our own Home Economics department was made possible by Book Week Scotland funding. Thank you to BWS.
