Renfrew High welcomed Scotland’s First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, to launch the First Minister’s Reading Challenge across Scottish secondary schools on Monday 10th September.
Chiming with the First Minister’s visit, prior to the national roll-out of the campaign, the school library participated in a year’s Reading Challenge pilot programme – that has sought to engage and stimulate pupils’ interest, usage and positive perception of the school library and resources. The success of last year’s pilot project will now be replicated across Scottish secondary schools.
And Head teacher Billy Burke added:
“We were delighted to participate in the secondary pilot of the First Minister’s Reading Challenge and I have hugely been impressed by how our young people have embraced the opportunity.
“Literacy unlocks the wider curriculum, and it is fantastic to see our young pupils’ enjoying, embracing and leading in this area of their learning.”
