A group of S1 & S2 pupils attended the Grampian Children’s Book Awards on Wednesday 10th May and to our delight came home with awards of our own!
Nicole Franklin (2MA) won 2nd prize in the Book Review competition and Roseanna Simpson (1MA) and Megha Jacob (1DA) won 3rd prize for their Book Trailer. Well over 20 schools from across Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire and Moray take part in this event so it is a brilliant achievement for the girls and Hazlehead Academy.
Four authors – James Clammer, Alan Gibbons, Lisa Williamson & Laura Lam (all of whom have books in the school library) spoke to the audience about their experiences and answered questions from the pupils, including two of our own. We also got a chance to have our books signed (come and see them in the library!) and meet them personally which was a great thrill for us all.
We’re looking forward to taking part again next year and hopefully coming home with a 1st prize this time! Look out for information in the DIS later in the year.
