Book Week Scotland
For Book Week Scotland and Moffat Academy were very excited to have the fantastic author and storyteller Renita Boyle visiting Primary and Nursery on Monday 21st November organised by Miss Gibbon (Moffat Academy Library). Beattock Primary also came along to enjoy the event, thank you to Mrs Macfarlane and Mr Breen for bus duties! Renita was as always exceptionally entertaining and sang interactive songs and introduced her new book to the pupils.
A huge thank you to Daren Welch from the Moffat Bookshop who funded the whole event. Daren was lucky enough to receive a grant from the James Patterson Fund and has very generously donated an amount to Moffat Academy for author events.
Secondary pupils are taking part in a quiz where staff have new literary couple names e.g. Romeo and Juliet. Pupils must hunt down the new staff names around the school and pair them together.
