Born to Write

Congratulations to Year 6 pupil, Lily, who was this week crowned the winner of the St Mary’s Shaftesbury ‘Born to Write’ creative writing competition (Junior Category) – and to Harry, Katya and Ollie, who were each awarded Highly Commended in their categories. “I was astounded by the level of entries we had this year,” says St Mary’s Librarian, Min Edmonds, who is also a judge for the Radio 2 500 Words competition. “The clever interpretations of this year’s theme, ‘Earth’, were truly impressive and showed such wonderful imagination. The prize winners should be very proud of their achievement.” Many thanks to Mrs Byrne and Mr Silk for their encouragement and guidance in the run up, to author and Achievement for All ambassador, Joffre White, who had the pleasure of judging this year’s competition, and to all at St Mary’s Shaftesbury for a brilliant and hugely inspiring event.
