The CGI Schools Programme

Our annual programme of schools events offers fantastic opportunities for young readers and writers from across the Scottish Borders to become actively involved in the world of writing, to explore their own creativity, and have fun with words.

When the CGI Schools Gala Day celebration took place in September 2019 (our last day of live events before the pandemic), it was one of the single biggest annual schools events held in the South of Scotland, where more than 1,100 nursery and primary school pupils joined master storytellers and artists for a day packed with captivating stories and characters.

We’re delighted to be working again with CGI as our Educational Partners in 2022 and can’t wait to reveal plans for our programme of physical and live-streamed events for schools, due to take place in September.

Our schools events are developed with the support of additional key partners, the National Library of Scotland and LIVE Borders.
