Adventures in words

Oldbury Wells School (OWS) launched the Get Creative literacy competition earlier this year, with Kindle electronic readers as prizes for the six main winners. The competition was open to Year 7 pupils at OWS and pupils in Years 5 and 6 from the local primary schools of Alveley, Claverley, Highley, Morville, St John’s and St Leonard’s. The challenge was to write an adventure story of no more than 500 words and design a front cover for their story. The prize-giving ceremony was held in Oldbury Wells’ East Hall on 17 March, with prizes presented by local MP Philip Dunne.

Headteacher Sarah Godden said, “The event was a enormous success – it was lovely to see all the work from local primary schools which our Year 7 pupils showcased in a colourful exhibition. Thank you to our Governors who judged the hundreds of entries. I’d also like to thank Allied in Partnership and Hills Coaches for sponsoring our prizes.”
