Creative Writing Competition Winners Announced

Wednesday, April 3, 2019

February at Oldbury Wells saw the return of our Get Creative Writing Competition which students in Years 7 and 8 entered in the hopes of being one of four main winners of a Kindle electronic reader.

As in previous years, the students were set two challenges. The first was to write a 500 word story about an eco-superhero. The second task was to research an iconic scientist or explorer such as Marie Curie, Alan Turing, Ernest Shackleton and Neil Armstrong and, using no more than 200 words, write a piece to justify their importance. Hundreds of fantastic and imaginative entries were submitted for the panel of school governors to judge.

A special assembly was held on Friday 29th March to announce the winners and runners-up. School Governor, Mr Moreton, presented them with their Kindle prizes, sponsored by Hills Coaches.

Mr Moreton said, "I was very impressed with the quality of the many stories submitted by over 300 pupils. The judges had a very difficult task to decide the winners. Many congratulations to the winners and also to ALL pupils who took part."
