“A Picture is Worth 1000 Words” is a House writing competition, where students had to use a photograph as inspiration to write a story.

Congratulations to Lucy Ward on winning the writing competition for Hawks! The level of competition was very high but Lucy managed to pip the post over the other finalists, Makayla Easen (Kestrels), Taya Hethershaw (Hawks) and Chris Scott (Kestrels).

Here is the opening from the winning entry:

The path is a back alley, with green plants unfurling their leaves over the path in a surprisingly artistic mess. I take this path every day to get home, and as usual, my hands are shoved in my pockets and head ducked down against the glare of the sun.

House Points: Buzzards – 10, Kestrels – 110, Hawks – 210
