Glenrothes school to be given fully-funded au­thor res­i­dency

The Courier & Advertiser (Fife Edition) - - NEWS -

Cask­ieber­ran Pri­mary School has been cho­sen to re­ceive a ful­ly­funded au­thor res­i­dency from the Scot­tish Book Trust.

Au­thor and il­lus­tra­tor John Fardell, who wrote The Seven Pro­fes­sors Of The Far North and The Flight Of The Sil­ver Tur­tle, will work on var­i­ous projects with pupils at the Glenrothes school in the hope of in­spir­ing a life-long love of read­ing and writ­ing.

Mr Fardell said: “I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to work­ing with the pupils and staff, and I’m sure we’ll have a lot of fun gen­er­at­ing imag­i­na­tive cre­ative work.”

Marc Lam­bert, chief ex­ec­u­tive of the Scot­tish Book Trust, said: “Bring­ing au­thors into the class­room makes books and sto­ry­telling come alive for pupils and in­spires their own writ­ing and creativ­ity.”
