Aldershot News & Mail - - SCHOOLS -

PUPILS from St Ni­cholas’ School in Church Crookham took part in a spe­cial assem­bly this month where they were awarded cer­tifi­cates for their suc­cesses in com­pe­ti­tions or­gan­ised by Fleet Ro­tary Club.

Ear­lier this month, Rotarians John Bur­ton and An­drew Kirk pre­sented 22 cer­tifi­cates to the chil­dren for their en­tries into the young writer and young pho­tog­ra­pher com­pe­ti­tions, where they went up against pupils from other schools in Fleet and Church Crookham.

The sub­ject of the young writer com­pe­ti­tion was ‘What a dif­fer­ence that made to my life’, which pro­voked a va­ri­ety of both ‘charm­ing and chill­ing’ en­tries, ac­cord­ing to the panel’s Ro­tar­ian judges.

The in­ter­me­di­ate prize was won by Year 8 pupil Sasha Venn. In ad­di­tion, three pupils were highly com­mended and 13 were com­mended for their en­tries.

A spokesman for the school said: “Ex­pect to see St Ni­cholas’ stu­dents win­ning the Booker Prize in the fu­ture.”
