Grampian Book Award Ceremony

Some of our Novelties Book Group attended The Grampian Children’s Book Award ceremony in Aberdeen on 11 May, with Mrs Toonen. This award is for best fiction book, judged by pupils in Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire and Moray.
The pupils read the shortlisted books and voted for their favourite and were able to meet several authors. There were book signings, competitions and lively Q & A session. Three of our pupils were highly commended on their competition entries in the review and poster competitions. Congratulations to Matthew Hamilton and Jamie Rankin for their reviews of Devil You Know by Cathy Macphail and to Louis Russell for his poster of Under My Skin by Juno Dawson. “We enjoyed a grand day out, meeting amazing authors, who were inspirational and we can’t wait for next year.”
