To coincide with Book Week Scotland we are launching READATHON with our S2 pupils. This will run until 24th February with our total being announced on World Book Day (2nd March). All pupils have been issued sponsor forms, a bookmark and a letter to take home with all the information. Pupils will set themselves reading targets during their library periods and will be encouraged to challenge themselves. It's not just about books! Pupils are encouraged to read magazines, newspapers (including online articles), audiobooks and eBooks. Pretty much anything goes! Please give whatever you can for this worthy cause. Sponsors can be as little as 10p a book.
More information can be found on the Readathon website. http://www.readathon.org/
This week is Book Week Scotland! Prestwick Academy will be taking part in various activities to help celebrate. We have our Get Caught Reading competition for staff and pupils, S2 are taking part in READATHON, the art department have created some spectacular book sculptures and we are hosting another Half Price Scholastic Bookfair.
This year the library and English department have gone with a fairy tales theme for the week. Look out for photos of our displays. Happy Reading!

Please note that only one picture per pupil/teacher/department is permitted, the photo must be of you reading in an unusual place and the judges’ decision is final.
