On Friday 6th May our wonderful Patron of Reading, the celebrated, award-winning Scottish author, Janis Mackay, took time out of her hectic schedule to support Sciennes’ pupils and staff in continuing to promote a love of reading. Many thanks to Ms Bethan Owen for organising.
BOOK LAUNCH at P4-7Assembly
We were so excited to host the launch of Janis Mackay’s latest book – the third in her Time Traveller trilogy – “The Unlikely Time Traveller” and P5 pupil Iseabhail was thrilled to receive the very first signed copy. Janis read extracts from her new book and shared the journey she took in writing. What a great example of how to persevere and be resilient, showing that success comes from persistent effort. Janis has set everyone a creative writing challenge, asking pupils to imagine what the world will be like 100 years from now. The deadline for completion is the end of May.) There are amazing prizes on offer, including a generous £30 book token and fantastic signed framed copies of a specially commissioned poster with Sciennes in the title! Pencils at the ready and thinking caps on!
P5 pupils gave a rousing rendition of one of the songs from their outstanding performance of Scottish Opera’s “Fever” on Wednesday 4th May. Bravo! Superb production!
