The project ,'Jackets for Goalposts', was funded and supported by Creative Scotland and The National Lottery.

It is a multi arts production created by storytellers and performers Ron Fairweather and Fergus McNicol.

'Jackets for Goalpost' highlights part of the journey  two soldiers ,one German and one Scottish took as they were called up to fight in WW1.

A drama performance was followed by creative writing and art workshops for P 6 and P7 students from  fifteen schools across Scotland.

The aim is to entice reluctant  readers ,and those beginning the reading journey  into the world of books.

We can also come into the school to launch the project with an interactive storytelling performance.

We have found that this model   works very well and gives the participants a connection with who they will see on the screen.
