EAST AYRSHIRE SPRING READ
On 20th February, we received a visit from the Edinburgh-based author Jonathan Meres who spoke to S2 pupils from KA, James Hamilton and St. Joseph 's Academies. Jonathan gave an energetic and deliciously unpredictable performance which had his young audience captivated throughout. Graham Short, Executive Director of Educational and Social Services, was in attendance and expressed his enthusiasm and support for the event.
The visit was arranged as part of the East Ayrshire Spring Read book festival, an initiative by East Ayrshire school librarians to celebrate World Book Day. Jonathan also visited Grange and Cumnock Academies. S1 and S2 pupils have already visited St. Joseph 's and James Hamilton Academies to hear Cathy Cassidy and the storyteller, Michael Kerins.
