Rotary Young Writers’ Competition
Hugo R. was one of over 50 Cranmore pupils who entered this national competition competing against other students from across the UK and Ireland. In the junior category for 8-10 year olds, he had to produce a piece of creative writing on the theme of ‘A Different Perspective’. Hugo wrote a marvellous poem in which he personified a piece of coal that had been extracted from the earth.
Winning the district round, he went on to achieve third place overall.
Three other Cranmore children achieved success in the local round of the competition – Jai Arun in Form 5 was highly commended in the Intermediate category (11-13 year olds); Adrian Groenewald and Cameron Brown, both in Form 3 also received judges’ commendations.
Well done, everyone.
