BOOK OF THE WEEK – Every week we’ll showcase a book recommended by a pupil, member of staff or parent/carer. Want to nominate a book? Email PHSLibrary@pkc.gov.uk to get it featured. This week our book has been nominated for the Scottish Children’s Book Award 2020: THE GIFTED, THE TALENTED AND ME by William Sutcliffe.

Fifteen-year-old Sam isn’t special. He’s not a famous vlogger, he’s never gone viral, and he doesn’t want to be the Next Big Thing. What he likes most is chatting to his friends and having a bit of a kick about. But a change at home means Sam is made to go to the North London Academy for the Gifted and Talented, where every student seems to be busy planning Hollywood domination, starting alt-metal folk crossover bands or making clothes out of bathmats. Can Sam find his place here while still being himself?

Interhouse – Anti-Bullying Week – Odd Socks Friday – This week is Anti-Bullying Week. Anti – Bullying week is an annual UK event held in the third week in November which aims to raise awareness of bullying of children and young people, in schools and elsewhere, and to highlight ways of preventing and responding to it. On Friday we will have Odd Socks Day to celebrate what makes us unique….what kind will you choose to wear?!

Challenge: Earn yourself an Interhouse point by wearing odd socks and help us spread awareness.

How to earn your point: Go to your House Google Classroom and find the “Odd Socks” assignment. Take a picture of you wearing your socks (your face does not have to be in it) and post it in the assignment. If you cannot take a picture please come to 2.11 on Friday anytime throughout the day and show your socks/give your name and house to Miss Hardie and we will allocate a point to your house.
