This year saw the first narrative writing competition for Year 7&8 students at Carmel College. Around 60 entries were received by the judges, Katie Pigeon and Katy Body. It was tough to judge, but after many hours of joyful reading and discussion, ‘The Katies’ agreed upon the winners. The stories were on the theme of Change. The winning entries showed maturity and many of our writers drew on personal experiences to create their narrative.
Year 8 Winners:
First Prize – Meila Oosterdijk with her story ‘Changing Through the Ages’
Runners-up – Emma Liu with ‘Butterflies’ and Grace O’Neill with a story called ‘Beat the Chaser’
Year 7 Winners:
First Prize – Candace Tevaga with ‘Change’
Runners-up – Isla McLean with ‘What a Kitten Can Change’ and Annalina Schutzwith with a story called ‘Leaving Home’
The winners each receive a $100 book token, while runners-up will receive one valued at $30. Congratulations to the winners.
Winning stories will be published and shared via the newsletter soon.
