Room 23 Elsie Locke Writing Competition

Our students in Room 23 have been busy writing for the Elsie Locke writing Competition.

Since 2009, thousands of students have participated in the Elsie Locke Writing Prize. The prize commemorates Elsie Locke’s life, both as a writer and as a person who was concerned about peace, the environment, women’s issues, and community. The winner receives $250 together with a certificate, and their story is published in the School Journal.

TOPIC FOR 2017: A story set in early New Zealand that is about exploration, a discovery, or an encounter.

Well done to all those who took part. Here are our two entries.. what amazing pieces of writing.
