Anne Frank Creative Writing Awards 2020
We are pleased to announce that 15 of our students entered the Anne Frank Creative Writing Awards where students were asked to use Anne Frank as inspiration to create a piece of writing that called for a world free from prejudice.
The Anne Frank Trust received 937 entires and five of our incredibly talented students were identified by Booker Prize winner Bernardine Evaristo and Anthony Anaxagorgou, where the students were judged on the creativity and quality of their writing, the originality of their take on Anne Frank and the strength of their anti-prejudice message.
We a proud to say that Emmanuelle K in Year 9 won the overall essay competition with a strong and moving piece titled #BLACKLIVESMATTER, reminding us that we all have a duty to end prejudice and discrimination. You can watch Bernardine Evaristo read an extract of Emmanuelle's work below:
Not only only does Emmanuelle take home top spot, but she has also won a trip to Amsterdam and a VIP tour of the Anne Frank House once it is safe to travel.
Our student's exceptional writing skills have also impressed the The Chief Executive of the Anne Frank Trust, Tim Robertson, so much that he would like to commend the students in person the Autumn Term.
A big thanks to Ms Costa who coordinated this project!
