Ellie Bissett, 2W2, and Annie Bowman, 2S2, have taken Ross High over the 100,000,000 million mark for words read through Accelerated Reader! Congratulations to all our pupils on this fantastic achievement!
Thank you to all parents and staff who have promoted and encouraged personal reading this year. Pupils are evidently reading more regularly and we want to keep pushing this and aim high once again next session.
We have also beaten our target for books read, which now stands at 2027.
S1 – 4 pupils are invited to let their imagination run wild in this year’s Tyne and Esk Young Writer of the Year competition.
Entrants must reside in East Lothian and are allowed to enter one piece of original writing. The work can be either prose or poetry. Prose should be no more than 1500 words with poetry being no longer than 40 lines. There is no charge for entering the competition.
Entrants must ensure that they include their name; age; class; title of their entry; name of school and their English teacher on the back of their piece of original writing. Please keep an electronic copy as you will need this should you win.
All entries should be handed to English teachers by Wednesday 11 June.
