Getting It Write
The English Department was very excited to welcome the successful author Cathy Macphail, to run some writing workshops for two days in September. This included, not only our current S1 pupils, but also our future pupils from associated primaries, Kelvindale, Highpark and Caldercuilt. Her novels are always a hit with the pupils at Cleveden, so we were especially delighted that she agreed to judge a short story competition for all the S1 and P7 pupils taking part in the workshop. Watch this space for an announcement of the winners.

It was a great day and the feedback from the primaries was very positive where they got a lot from the workshops and out S1s were a credit to the school. The S1s and P7s are now busy writing short stories for the completion she set. Winners will be announced after the October Break. Watch this space.
