Guernsey Literary Festival

Thanks to an amazing line from the 2015 Guernsey Literary Festival, Elizabeth College and ECJS students were able to take advantage of some very special author visits in school. These included visits by Anthony McGowan, Andrew Lane, Marcus Alexander, Ben Norris, Spud and Yam and Korky Paul.

Staff and students were also involved in creating a special literary bench to commemorate the story of Ebenezer Le Page which was painted with scenes from the book by Art teacher Charlie Buchanan and student Sam O’Neill. The beautiful bench was unveiled at Castle Cornet and then formed a focal point in the Market Square.
