Literacy worked verywell atfestival


Well-read pupils helped Coatbridge High School celebrate its third Literacy Works! Festival.

The school’s literacy committee were keen to provide youngsters with a festival this year following the cancellati­on of 2020’s event due to the pandemic and worked tirelessly to ensure this was possible.

S1-3 kids enjoyed contributi­ons from a wide range of presenters who all appeared digitally.

Presentati­ons were shown across the school and literacy was the talk of the town as it could be found in maths and PE classes, science labs and home economics kitchens.

A Coatbridge High spokespers­on said: “Literacy Works! aimed to promote literacy as a vital skill for life and work. The presentati­ons all focused on the various ways in which literacy is used in a range of jobs and roles.

“Contributo­rs ranged from poets, novelists, translator­s, university staff, politician­s, radio presenters and even Scotland’s National Chef.”
