Wish You Weren’t Here?

Where or when would you rather be, and why?

Come to the library to check out our vortex display and answer the above question by filling out a postcard which will then go on display!  We hope to create a swirling effect of postcards going into the vortex!

Be A Better Person Through Reading

EmpathyLab is a relatively new website which highlights the link between reading and empathy.  Reading builds empathy – the ability to understand the feelings of others – by introducing us to new worlds, new situations, new points of view and letting us “experience” things through the eyes of others.

EmpathyLab has put together a list for 2018 of books recommended to build empathy skills:  http://www.empathylab.uk/empathybookcollection

Check it out.  Have you already any of these books?  Can you recommend any books that helped you think differently about how others feel?

Book Week Scotland 2017

The Library got together again with the Community Link team and H.E. Dept. to put on an evening for the parents of S1 and P7 pupils – the “PHS Rough Guide to Teens”! It was a great evening, with advice, books and food all for free thanks to funding from the school and the Scottish Book Trust. We hope to be able to host similar events in the future.

Harry Potter Day – Nov 2017

S1 got a chance to see Library and English staff in a slightly different light, as we dressed up for our fabulous Harry Potter Day.

Professors Snape and Umbridge kept everyone in check, Professors McGonagall and Trelawney ran activities alongside our very own Hermione, with Harry and Ron assisting at every turn! There was spellmaking, art activities and a House quiz, with the opportunity for the whole school to sit an O.W.L. exam at lunchtime.

Many thanks to our senior pupils who were so keen to also help out on the day.  Check out our Harry Potter day photos by clicking on the link here – http://bit.ly/2hmzJi9
