MSJ Shines in Creative Writing Competition
Congratulations to Flora Barber, Year 12, and Emma Green, Year 7, who have beaten all other contenders in their respective age categories in the local round of the Rotary Young Writers Competition. Both girls qualified to compete in the regional round, where Flora came runner-up in the Over 15 category.
The judges were very impressed with their entries and offered some great positive feedback. For Flora’s piece they commented ‘The language was felt to be beautifully varied and the structure of the prose was very well defined’. Comments received by Emma included the following, ‘…there was good clarity of message and the piece was both interesting and easy to read. Not only that but they felt that it was a very mature piece of writing for someone of your age.’
