Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

A Cathkin High pupil has won the S2 Spooky Flash Fic­tion Writ­ing com­pe­ti­tion for 2015.

Jane Findlay of 2K2, wrote a spine-chilling bed­time story in or­der to win a Water­stones voucher and en­try to a Na­tional Writer UK com­pe­ti­tion called, “Spinechillers”.

She said:“I was pleased with my story but never thought it would win. I love mys­ter­ies and hor­ror sto­ries so the writ­ing really suited me.”

Cre­ativ­ity shone in S1 too with El­lie Henry, from class 1K1, who won the S1 Scot­tish Poetry Day Acros­tic Poem Writ­ing com­pe­ti­tion. Her poem had beau­ti­ful de­scrip­tion and vo­cab­u­lary.

El­lie, who also won a Water­stones voucher, said:“I was very sur­prised to win but I love writ­ing fic­tional sto­ries.”

Mrs Ste­wart, the fac­ulty head of English at the school, added her thanks. She said: “Well done to all en­trants for their par­tic­i­pa­tion. The stan­dard was great and the de­ci­sion was very dif­fi­cult.”

Both pupils’work is on dis­play in the English depart­ment.
