FOBISIA COVID-19 Creative Writing Competition
The English Department is delighted to announce the recognition of two of our pupils’ creative talents by gaining highly commended mentions in two separate competition from the previous academic year.
For the FOBISIA COVID-19 Creative Writing Competition, Sophia Tan (Hundred) gained a highly commended mention for her short story, which was described by judge Angie Wigford from International Educational Psychology Services (IEPS) as ‘very moving, well planned and executed with wonderful descriptive language and a lovely positive ending.’ It is extremely pleasing to see Sophia and many of our pupils flourishing through adversity and gaining recognition from over 600 entrants. (Full details can be found here.)
Jasmine Surif (Lower Sixth) also gained special mention in the Commonwealth Essay Competition, where she wrote a speech imagining that she was a President of one of the Commonwealth’s 31 Small States and had been invited to talk on Climate Change to other Commonwealth leaders. We are delighted that Jasmine was able to gain recognition in the world’s oldest and largest international youth writing contest that has been running for over 100 years.
