We have stolen this news article from Aberdeenshire Council's website. It talks about the wonderful little book written by children at Monymusk and gives a link to vote for them at the Scots Language Awards - you have until 10th September to cast your vote!
Headteacher Jill Moir said: “We are absolutely delighted that both the children’s book and the school itself have been nominated for this year’s Scots Language Awards. I am so proud of the pupils’ achievements this year – they worked so hard on writing the book in the Doric dialect and they are all very deserving of an award for all their efforts.”
Cllr David Keating, chair of the council’s Education and Children’s Services Committee, added: “I’m really pleased at the well-deserved news for Monymusk School and these nominations demonstrate the school’s commitment to keeping the Doric alive and kicking. I really hope everyone across Aberdeenshire will vote for the school – it really would be the icing on the cake for the pupils, staff and parents.”
Voting for this year’s Scots Language Awards is now open and closes on Sunday, September 10. You can cast your votes here: https://projects.handsupfortrad.scot/scotslanguageawards/
