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.”
