Report by Sam Carder and Chris Price
Some year 7 students from Richard Lander School recently entered a writing competition, the Cornish Tea Creative Writing Competition. This is a writing competition that allows school children to show off their talent and skill through writing. Many Richard Lander School students entered, unfortunately no one from the school won, however, three students from class 7L1 (Mrs Schofield and Mr Williams) made it into the top ten as runners up. These are:
Sam Carder, Chris Price and Alisha Hick.
The runner up prize for this competition is a packet of teabags, hence the name, and the top ten students will receive one packet each. For this competition you had to write a poem or a short story, based in Cornwall, which had to be between 100-130 words long. Hundreds of students from Cornwall entered and those students that came in the top ten are extremely fortunate. Congratulations to the winner, but commiserations to all students that entered.
After being interviewed Sam said that he was delighted with his position in the top ten, although he would have loved to come first. He said that he tried his best and he could not do any more.
