ROYAL JUNIOR AND SENIOR SCHOOL PUPILS SWEEP THE BOARD
Six Royal School pupils have won prizes in the Farnham Rotary’s Young Writer competition this year.
Helena (9R), won the local competition for the second year in a row, with Pelagia (9R) and Millie (7M) achieving second and third place in the Intermediate competition. The theme of the competition was My Inspiration and Helena’s piece was a cleverly structured dual narrative mirroring Scott’s Antarctic expedition with a modern day expedition.
Further success was also had by the Royal Junior School boys and girls who entered in the Junior category. Nathan (Prep 6HU) and Isla F (Prep 6DE) scooped second and third places respectively, with Freya (Prep 4OM) achieving a well-deserved first prize. Even more sensational was the news that Freya’s story also went on to win the South East round of the competition: a fabulous achievement indeed!
Representatives of the Rotary Club, Mr Drummond and Mr Duffy visited The Royal School to award the pupils their prizes on Monday 13 May.
