Our Lady’s pupils in third and fourth year won a competition in October at the North Lanarkshire Catalyst Book Awards for the best use of the Catalyst blog.
Their prize was a visit from award winning author Cathy MacPhail, which took place recently, and the classes were enthralled by Cathy’s stories of moving statues, haunted hotels and creepy libraries.
The Creative Writing Club also discussed lots of ideas with Cathy and sought advice for their own writing.
Cathy was kind enough to answer all their questions and even set them a writing challenge at the end of the afternoon.
