Writing Competition - Bonfire Night
Pupils were set the task this week of reflecting on a brilliant evening last Friday as we celebrated Bonfire Night with a spectacular display of fireworks.
They were asked to write either a short story, poem or newspaper report based on the events of Friday evening.
There was a high volume of entries and each pupil who did so received a plus point.
Three runners-up, who deserve a special mention and will receive a commended for their efforts, were Sylvia G and Anastasia G-C from Form 4 and William S in Form 1.
The winner of the competition was Clemmie G-C for her brilliantly crafted poem packed full of original imagery, graceful rhythm and rhyming couplets befitting of the evening. Well done, Clemmie.
People silent all around,
The sky lights up so bold and bright,
Such patient beasts in the dark,
Bangs will cry out all around,
By Clemmie G-C
