All of the new S1 students at Wester Hailes Education Centre paid a visit last week to the Baillie Gifford Edinburgh International Book Festival for schools.
This annual celebration of books and authors, takes place in the lovely Charlotte Square Gardens, in the centre of Edinburgh. This year the sunshine allowed the students to have packed lunches at the festival, outside!
The students asked excellent questions of the authors and were able to get their books signed after the authors’ talks.
