Gordano Breakfast Rotary Club encourages Young Writers

Seven young authors from Congyar Class at St. Mary’s C of E School in Portbury, recently completed a six -week writing project. The aim was to produce a 200-500 word piece of work as part of Rotary International’s Young Writer Competition. The title of the 2018 submission was “My Inspiration”. The Year 4 students were released from class for an hour a week and together they researched the meaning of “Inspiration”, exchanged ideas, wrote and rewrote, edited their work and made good use of a Thesaurus to produce seven very praiseworthy pieces. Each author received a certificate, presented in an Assembly, acknowledging their sterling efforts. After much deliberation, one piece was chosen to represent GBRC and has been forwarded to the next round. Congratulations to all the young authors!
