A Blog for Books.

Various pupils from ‘Our Lady and Saint Patrick’s High School’, Dumbarton have joined together to form the  OLSP Bookclub. This club actually originated from a previous S2 Integrated Learning Challenge based on the theme of disaster and emergency. And- ‘disaster’ it was not! The Bookclub was so successful that it continues to send shock-waves through the English corridor every Friday lunchtime, during our sacred meetings. Members will use this blog to share with the world our weekly antics and shenanigans, opinions on various texts and generally pontificating regarding ‘books.’ Remember- a book is not just for Christmas folks. xoxo
