Spine-chilling bedtime story wins Jane top award
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.
