Wonderland Stories Capture Imaginations of Young Writers


16 June 2017

The imagination and creativity of several of our Year 8 students have led to them becoming published writers.

Class 81C were challenged by Mrs Fry to enter a creative writing competition run by national organisation Young Writers.  Several of the class entered a one hundred word short story on the theme of ‘Welcome to Wonderland’ and six of the entries where chosen to be featured in the upcoming book.

Mrs Fry said, “I’m thrilled that so many of our entries have been chosen.  It is a great achievement and encouragement for all the students chosen and is testament to their vivid imaginations, creative thinking and flare for writing. We are sure that they will continue with their excellent creative writing and wish them every success!”

Huge congratulations to Emily in CE7, Rebecca in AP4, Jessica in MI4, Charlotte in ME4, Phoebe in AP3 Emily in JU6 on your fantastic achievement.
