SECONDARY schools in Cumbernauld and Kilsyth are being urged to sign up for a new ScottishPower initiative aimed at encouraging reading, writing and creativity.

In association with the Edinburgh International Book Festival, ScottishPower has launched Story Generator.

Pupils will be given the opening line from celebrated Scottish, children’s author Julie Bertagna, as the starting point for their story and use their imagination to take the tale forward.

The winning school will receive books with a prize for the individual pupil who provides the best line.

For more information or to register your school to take part in ScottishPower’s Story Generator initiative please contact Kirstin Aitken at The BIG Partnership on 0141 333 9585 or kirstin.aitken@bigpartnership.co.uk.
