Jars and magic at BCHS book day celebrations
WORLD Book Day on March 5 was celebrated in style at Buckie Community High School with the school library providing the focal point for a number of different events.
There was a week long challenge for students and staff alike in the form of the novel Book in a Jar competition. The aim of the game was guess the book titles using the clues contained in a total of 13 jars.
This proved to be a very thought-provoking exercise which created a lot of discussion.
On World Book Day itself, the library was given to all things magical when a Harry Potter quiz took place, with both students and staff pitching in to pit their knowledge of the boy wizards against each other.
School librarian Stephen Leitch said: "After five rounds of fiendish questions, a winning team was announced with a super 21 out of 25 points.
"The team was made up of S1 pupils Emily Stewart, Erin Combe, Kaydee Cowieand Rosie-Willow Clarke."
