We have four Book Groups in the school — two in the Upper Junior School and two in the Senior School.
The Junior 5 Book Group is hosted by the S6 Librarians. The J5 pupils love working with the older pupils and the Book Group is always a lively lunchtime session, with lots of discussion and story-telling.
The Junior 7 Book Group is run by Mrs Pearce and the girls get to choose their own books for each other. J7 pupil Faith went to this Club all year. “I have really enjoyed attending Book Club this year. I discovered lots of new authors and read books I wouldn’t have tried before."
Mrs Luc, one of Craigholme’s Librarians, runs the S1 Book Group. This term they have been reading books from the Scottish Children’s Book Awards shortlist. The authors they are going to be reading next term are Teresa Flavin, Nicola Morgan and Theresa Breslin.
The S3–S6 Book Group are led by Mrs Young. They have been meeting since the start of the school year and are currently reading Brave New World.
