Baillie Gifford Schools Programme

Wednesday 27 Sept 2023: Hawick

We were delighted to welcome young readers and writers from across the Scottish Borders to a great line-up of physical and live-streamed events at venues in Hawick. The programme was bursting with imaginative, lively, educational, and fun events for pupils from Nursery to P7, with some of today’s most engaging and inspiring children’s authors and illustrators.

For those who were unable to join us in person, events were live-streamed and available to view for free via our partners, Scottish Borders Council’s Inspire Learning team.

Many thanks to our Schools Programme sponsor Baillie Gifford, who provided each pupil attending in-person a free goody bag and book, which they were able to get signed by our authors. We also provided travel grants for schools who needed assistance to attend our events in Hawick.

A selection of previous Schools Programme events are available to watch for free.
