BBC Radio 2 and Oxford Dictionaries for Children have once again teamed up for '500 Words' – the nationwide competition to find the most talented young writers in the UK.
Nine Habs pupils entered the competition and were among 135,000 young writers across the country hoping to get through to the second round.
The School is delighted to announce that, following the judging process, Aarav, Connor and Ish (all Year 3), Aiden, Bartholomew, Saish and Shaurya (all Year 4), Jacob (Year 6), and Ray (Year 8) have just been informed that their '500 Words' pieces have been shortlisted and that they are now in round 2 of the competition. Only 5,000 write-ups were shortlisted for round 2 from the 135,000 entries in total, which means that these nine boys are in the top 3.7% nationally!
The School would like to congratulate the pupils on this fantastic achievement.
