Cathy MacPhail visit to Taylor High School Library

Some S2 pupils had the pleasure of hearing Cathy Macphail discuss her work on Tuesday.  Pupils really enjoyed hearing what Cathy had to say about her books and life as a writer.  It was a really enjoyable experience for both pupils and staff.

Pupils also got an opportunity to buy some of her work and get their books signed.  We hope to have Cathy back again soon.

OLHS pupils in 3rd and 4th year won a competition back in October at the North Lanarkshire Catalyst Book Awards 2011 for the best use of the Catalyst blog. Their prize was a visit from award winning author, Cathy MacPhail.

The classes were enthralled by Cathy’s stories of moving statues, haunted hotels and creepy libraries. The Creative Writing Club also discussed lots of ideas with Cathy and sought advice for their own writing. Cathy was kind enough to answer all their questions and even set them a writing challenge at the end of the afternoon.
