Steve Cole came to OLHS as part of his tour to promote the new Young Bond book, Shoot to Kill. Despite being held up by traffic, Steve arrived in Our Lady’s, got set up and practically bounded onto the stage, entertaining 1st and 2nd year pupils from OLHS, Firpark and Clyde Valley High School for the following hour.
Steve started by showing the book’s trailer and explaining the origins of James Bond, before moving onto spy gadgets, past and present, including cameras, some rather weird weaponry and seriously silly cars. At this point he invited pupils to come up on stage and try some target practice (with Nerf blasters) before reading a short extract from the novel.
Finally Steve answered a huge number of questions, with signed posters for the best three questions, before signing autographs and books.
Many thanks to Random House and Steve Cole for their visit, to CultureNL for inviting us to host, to Scotia Books for helping with the books for sale, to Mrs Macfadyen for organising the event and to the 6th years who volunteered to help out with directing our visitors and selling books.
