Writing Competitions Winners

You are here

The Junior School recently held a writing competition, based around the theme of “The River”. We were thrilled with how many students entered a story or poem around this theme. Ms Hansford and I loved reading through the entries from the finalists for each grade. It was challenging to pick winners but those who were successful were chosen for their originality, their descriptive language, the sophistication of their sentences for their age and their story telling ability. This year the winning entries will be published in a new digital format, enabling more to have access to these. Details regarding the new format will be released later in the year.  

Prize winners will be rewarded with a certificate and a book related prize. Our winners and highly commended achievers from Year 1 – 6 will also take part in a writing workshop with published author, Lisa Shanahan, to help hone their writing skills. 

Well done to all who entered and congratulations to the winners listed below. Stay tuned for an upcoming P – 6 illustrators’ competition!
