Pupils have the write stuff
11:00am Friday 22nd February 2013 in News
BUDDING young writers in the Cotswolds have made it through to the next stages of the Rotary Young Writer competition.
Pupils from The Cotswold School and Temple Guiting Primary School were celebrating after getting through the district finals after writing a letter on the subject of peace.
Some wrote about war and peace, others about the peace after death while others wrote about inner peace.
Cotswold School pupil Luke Milner, aged 14, was the winner of the intermediate section of the district competition while Tom Gustine, 13, was runner-up.
Judges said Luke’s descriptions “were well thought out” while Tom’s “use of imagery made his letter stand out”.
Meanwhile, Richard Lamb, 10, a pupil at Temple Guiting Primary School, came second in the junior section.
The judge said: “Richard's letter to his Grandpa was thoughtful and moving.”
Bob Hadley, North Cotswold Rotary Club president, said: “We have been hugely impressed with the high quality of entries for the Young Writer competition. We are very grateful to local schools for their support and the encouragement they give to students taking part.”
