A group of 3rd year pupils went along to the Catalyst Teenage Book Award today. We were also very lucky to have some plucky 6th years, prepared to plunge into the audience with microphones, regardless of their personal safety.
The eventual winner was Anthony MacGowan, with his book “Henry Tumour” (which is fab!), and so far I’ve heard nothing but good stuff about the event.

The 6th year pupils. from the Advanced Higher English class, were especially enthralled with Melvin Burgess, who they now refer to as Unkie Melvis (!)
