Wimbledon BookFest awards Holy Cross students!

A number of students in Years 8, 9 and 10  received commendation from Wimbledon BookFest, Young Writers’ Competition 2021 (‘My Name Is…’) for the outstanding works they submitted. Entrants were asked to think about names and what they meant to them as the inspiration or starting point for their story or poem.

Congratulations to Bunny Perry (Y10), Lara Henderson (Y10) and Lavanya Lemmon (Y9) who were commended for their entries.

Congratulations to Siena Baker (Y10), Phoebe Lander (Y8) and Charlotte Maguire (Y8) who were highly commended for their entries. Their work has been published in ‘My Name Is’, a collection of short stories and poems and they will each receive a copy.

With a total of 490 entries submitted, we are incredibly proud of all the students for having their work acknowledged in this way. Congratulations on this wonderful achievement!
