Two of our pupils took part in the challenge for CEC secondary pupils to take over Edinburgh City Library’s twitter account for LGBT+ History Month. Pupils bombarded @TalesOfOneCity with tweets about their favourite LGBT+ heroes in books. Inspired by their enthusiasm we now have almost all of their favourite titles in the school library!
