The Grampian Children’s Book Awards Ceremony 16 May 2018

There was no Novelties Book Club at lunchtime on this Wednesday…. because we were meeting all day! Off to The Grampian Children’s Book Awards Ceremony in Aberdeen. And sharing a bus with Gordounstoun School and Lossiemouth High School. We loved the shortlist and think all of them are winners. 📚💜.

Everyone enjoyed the sunshine and a picnic lunch at King’s College before the ceremony and then some book browsing inside. Which books to buy? Big discussion and decisions for Vaughan and Ivo .

Lots to see and hear during the event, with video messages from the authors who couldn’t make it and a Q & A session too, before the winner was announced……

Congratulations to Cathy Macphail, winner of 2018’s Grampian Children’s Book Award!


We enjoyed a lovely day in Aberdeen today and Ivo & Vaughan were delighted with their book choices.


Big News and Big Congratulations to our two winners

Isobella in S3 won first prize in the poster competition for her stunning depiction of Truth or Dare by Non Pratt and Verena took 2nd prize with her interpretation of Between The Lies by Cathy Macphail 📚🎉💜 #YAAY #TeamEA.

We all enjoyed hearing author Non Pratt give Isobella a shout-out in her film. Our first class winner of the poster competition is very happy with her prize.

Huge congratulations to our prize winners and well done to all our pupils who entered the competitions and took part in the award.
