Almond inspirations

At the end of September, Ms McGhee’s 1st year class visited the BBC to take part in an audience with award winning author, David Almond.

In his talk, Mr Almond demonstrated the graffiti books he uses for inspiration, and afterwards, we challenged the class to create a graffiti board for themselves, with the winner receiving a signed David Almond book.

The final results were so outstanding that judges, class teacher, Ms McGhee, Principal Teacher of English, Mrs Millar, and LRC Manager, Mrs Macfadyen, not only agreed on a winner, but also nominated four runners ups. Congratulations to Andrea, John, Adam, Shelby and Ciara.
