A Brilliant Cargilfield Book Festival!

A Brilliant Cargilfield Book Festival!

A whole day focused on reading and book!

On Friday we had the first Cargilfield Book Festival, a day focused around books and reading for the whole school. Everyone dressed up as a character from a favourite book and we had a whole host of visiting authors, book illustrators and poets who gave lots of interesting workshops to different age groups; we had the Form 8 children reading to the youngest children throughout the day; there was a book fair for children to browse and buy some books and there was a also a drama workshop from Peter Jenkins of Fettes_College. The day was brought to a close with staff reading to children in strange places around the school and then with the Final of the school reading competition in Chapel. What a brilliant day and a big thank you to Mr Parker for all his hard work in organising such a Book Fest!
