Over three nights during the last week of term, Clyde Valley High took its audiences back to 1955 and to a small mid-Western American town for their production of the popular, modern musical ‘All Shook Up’, a show developed in 2004, as a vehicle for a collection of Elvis Presley hits. The show is not a musical biography of Elvis’ life, but a stand-alone plot that encompasses over 20 of Elvis’ hits including, Jailhouse Rock, Heartbreak Hotel, All Shook Up, A Little Less Conversation and Burnin’ Love.
The show follows tomboy Natalie who works as a mechanic at her dad’s filling station and who dreams of riding off on her motorbike with the man of her dreams. Into this sleepy town rides leather-jacketed, guitar-playing, ‘bad boy’ roustabout, Chad who introduces his wild rebel music to the downtrodden townsfolk. Chad breathes new life and awakens a spirit of romance into the town, starting a chain of events that includes mis-matched couples, mistaken identities, star-crossed lovers and unrequited passions.

North Lanarkshire Schools Read to Succeed
Now that your child has made the transition from primary to secondary school it is our responsibility, with your support, to encourage reading for pleasure in all our pupils. As part of the Read to Succeed initiative each secondary school in North Lanarkshire was supplied with a large collection of new books aimed specifically at the S1 age group, providing something to suit every reading age and ability.
We are now delighted to be able to offer every S1 pupil, in all of our North Lanarkshire schools, the chance to attend an author event. Each author will speak to the whole S1 year group in your child’s school about the types of books they write and the inspiration behind their writing. They will also encourage the pupils to continue to read and to write creatively. There is a tour schedule on the reverse of this letter for you to check which author will be visiting your child’s school.
At these author events there may also be an opportunity to purchase books by the author at a small discount. Most books will be priced between £5 and £8. There will also be an opportunity for pupils to meet the authors and get an autograph.
We hope you will continue to support us to help your child Read to Succeed and maximise their full potential.
Advice on how to encourage children to read for pleasure is available from The Scottish Book Trust website: http://www.scottishbooktrust.com/reading/parents.
If you want any further advice on helping your child choose books or how you can motivate them to read, please feel free to get in touch with the librarian by phoning the school. Our librarians are happy to help.
