Eastern Perthshire Decides - Blairgowrie & The Glens Ward

28th Feb 2018

We would very much appreciate it if you would consider voting for our project:

It is very much a collaborative project designed with the help and support of the staff at Blairgowrie High School. It is an opportunity to show how reading skills can allow all young minds to question, imagine and engage. Well established writers, illustrators and performers will be brought together in a programme that will offer the opportunity for pupils to engage in a range of different genres.

BOOKMARK will work with the staff to provide a diverse programme that pupils will have a say in planning. We believe that this will make the joint project accessible for all pupils from P7-S6, including the pupils in our enhanced provision and those who are in the lower deciles of the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation.

As well as pupils getting the chance to meet and hear from authors about their work, there will also be workshops and demonstrations that will be more active, allowing pupils practical involvement in a variety of creative activities with the aim of inspiring them to improve their own literacy skills. We will ensure that the festival is put together with the Curriculum for Excellence in mind with cross-curricular relevance when selecting authors.


It was fabulous to hear Janice Galloway read from her book Jellyfish. A great evening.
