John Swinney Visit

We were delighted to welcome John Swinney to our library, as part of his visit to Elgin Academy and to Moray on Tuesday 14 February.  John Swinney is Member of the Scottish Parliament for Perthshire North and Deputy First Minister and Cabinet Secretary for Education in the Scottish Government.

It was also lovely to welcome Richard Lochhead, SNP MSP for Moray.

Mrs Toonen, chatted about school libraries with our visitors and delivered a brief presentation about school libraries and their impact on attainment in literacy. A group of pupils also talked to John Swinney, about their experiences of the school library and how it impacts on their school careers. Well done Jamie, Daniel, Lewis & Megan, who were all fantastic advocates for the library. John Swinney commented: “Thank you to a fabulous group of young people. Great credit to Elgin Academy.”
