When the author Rachel Campbell-Johnston visited the school recently to talk about her book “The Child’s Elephant”, she invited our Year 8 pupils to take part in a competition to write short stories of their own. These should have at least 250 words in them, but ideally not too many more than that. The deadline for entries is Monday 12th May, after which they will all by posted off to Rachel, who will judge them herself. The prize will be a signed copy of her book. The school feels very honoured that Rachel is willing to give so much of her time to our students, and we hope that she will be impressed by both the quality and the quantity of the entries she receives. Please hand all submissions in at the library.
