Five Dock student takes bronze in WriteOn

An All Hallows Catholic Primary School Five Dock student has excelled in NESA’s annual WriteOn competition.

Lara, Year 2, earned one of just four Bronze Awards presented to Stage 1 students across the state for her story ‘The Abandoned House’.

‘My story ‘The Abandoned House’ is about two boys who want to find a special letter so they can become a special leader – king or queen,’ said Lara. ‘I decide to follow the sneaky boys, and become the queen of the town.’

The WriteOn competition invited years 1-6 students to create short stories that were judged on their creativity, variety of language and use of stylistic devices, and were awarded prizes in three categories – gold, silver and bronze.

As their inspiration, students were provided with a stimulus image by the State Library of NSW, which shows two boys walking through a hole in a fence.

The winning 500-word stories will be published in an anthology available next year.
