This was a tough as­sign­ment to judge this year’s up­per pri­mary prose sec­tion as the stan­dard was high and it was re­ally hard to se­lect the win­ners. The Great Foot­ball Match was se­lected as it was so well writ­ten, sim­ple and with great pace. Fad­ing in, Fad­ing Out was se­lected as it was a com­pas­sion­ately writ­ten piece paint­ing a pic­ture of a lov­ing fam­ily and the writer’s sto­icism un­der the try­ing cir­cum­stances. Third place went to Jun­gle Tragedy for its orig­i­nal­ity and the way the writer used lan­guage to build mo­men­tum and sus­pense. Both of the highly com­mended sto­ries were very well writ­ten and well paced, with a great deal of sus­pense build­ing up right un­til the end. Well done, win­ners.
