Book week at RSB

To celebrate The Year of Reading in the UAE, Rashid School for Boys enjoyed the start of an exciting selection of Book Week activities from 9 to 13 October.

Award Winning Author Stuart Reid Comes To RSB

stuart ReidOn Tuesday 20 October, children’s author, Stuart Reid, spent the day at RSB. Stuart opened the day with a funny and, at times, revolting assembly to our students in years 6, 7 & 8. There was lots of audience participation and while Stuart read from one of his Gorgeous George books students were instructed to throw false teeth (not the real kind!) at the author whenever they heard "false teeth" mentioned.

Stuart then delivered three fun-filled workshops to help students with their creative writing. He talked about the importance of characters, settings and plot and gave the students lots of ideas for writing a good story. He explained how TV shows, films and even computer games often start out as a book using characters, setting and plot.

Stuart said,

"The engagement, involvement and enthusiasm from all the pupils was an
absolute joy, and they were a credit to their school."
