St Bernadette’s Primary School Stenhousemuir near Glasgow
Tuesday saw us visiting the same area as Monday but on the other side of the main road. The journey there was not nearly as much fun, with an accident on the motorway causing traffic chaos but fortunately we arrived in plenty of time. The first rule of being a publicist is to leave enough time to ge to your event! Charlotte was highly organised – as was Stephie and Lisa the week before.
St Bernadette’s is a brand new school, opened abut 6 months ago. Architecturally it’s a stand out with fabulous design inside and out. With the whole school under one roof it’s definitely built for the cold weather. The children and teachers were lovely – highly enthusiastic and great fun. I talked to a smaller group of students in the spare classroom which is currently a music room – but for how much longer is anyone’s guess as the school is growing at a rapid rate.
We worked with the fabulous Linzi from Scotia Books, who was a star bookseller and also treated us to a delicious lunch at the shop. Pies, gravy and chips – perfect in the chilly Scottish weather. Linzi had us all laughing – she’s such a great girl. Can’t wait to work with them again when we come back for the Clementine Rose tour in November.
