Congratulations to the story writing contest winners Ebony, Georgia and Orla.

Tuesday 05 May 2020

Congratulations to everyone who entered the story writing contest. We had over thirty stories submitted - all of them were really exciting and competition was tough. We went backwards and forwards deciding which would be our three winners. In the end these three won on the basis of their immediately engaging openings, perfect pacing, rich sense of place and poignant endings. The pace and structure of these three short stories, as I am sure you will all agree, is remarkably sophisticated.

So congratulations to: Orla O’Neill (Year 7), Georgia Newman (Year8) and Ebony Hutton-Mitchell (Year 9)

We loved reading all your stories - thank you so much. Please keep sending any writing you do to Ms Havens, Ms McGachy, Ms Madziva or your English teacher.

An honourable mention goes to Ruby Thompson's The Red Horse.
