Literacy Day (3/02/2016)

Literacy Day    Wednesday February 3rd 2016.

This year we are focussing on Orcadian Folklore and Language.

The visitors will be Simon Hall who has written “The Orcadian Gruffalo”. He is the Principal Teacher of English at KGS but on secondment at present to promote the Orcadian language. Tom Muir works at the museum in Kirkwall. He is one of the Orkney Storytellers. We are hoping he will tell stories as well as read from his book “The Mermaid Bride and other Orkney Folk Tales”. Tom has visited our school before.

Look out for photographs of the event on the SJHS blog in the next few days!
