P6/7 pupils at Channelkirk Primary School met John Boyne, author of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, at RBS’s Gogarburn base on the western outskirts of Edinburgh.

The children were delighted to meet the writer after learning about the Second World War.

John spoke about what inspired him to become an author, how he generates ideas for his books and gave an insight into his development as a writer.

The pupils were eager to learn as much as they could from him and left feeling enthused and motivated to write their own short stories.

The school is grateful to Brian McCrindle, a parent and RBS employee, who organised this trip.
