Prizes won at Literary Festival writing competition

Prizes won at Literary Festival writing competition

Congratulations go to several of our girls who won prizes or were commended after entering the Chalfont St Giles and Jordans Literary Competition, as part of the villages’ Literary Festival in May. The girls were given three quotes; “Aftermath”, “To die will be an awfully big adventure” JM Barrie (from Peter Pan) and “One way to make the most out of life is to look upon it as an adventure” William A Feather, American publisher and author, and were tasked with writing a piece of prose or poetry based on one of these.

Winners in the Prose section were as follows; Molly, Year 7, in first place, Jasmine, Year 6, in second place, Daisy, Year 9, in third place and Georgina, Year 6 was highly commended. In the Poetry section, Saana, Year 9, was first, Jessica, Year 9 was second, Chloe-Marie, Year 9, was third and Cara, Year 9, was highly commended. The girls were all invited to receive their prizes at the Memorial Hall in Chalfont St Giles, and were able to read their pieces aloud to the festival-goers. Congratulations to all these girls, brilliant writing!
