Izzy gets busy to show write stuff

Ashbourne News Telegraph - - QEGS SPEECH NIGHT -

A PUPIL from Knive­ton Pri­mary School has been hailed the win­ner of a county-wide writ­ing com­pe­ti­tion.

The chal­lenge, set by Den­stone Col­lege, asked chil­dren from years four and five to write a short piece to de­scribe one thing that they would change about the world and ex­plain how they would do it.

Izzy Omo­to­sho wrote about how she wanted to make it eas­ier for girls in Africa to go to school. She wanted to cre­ate a world­wide girls’ news­pa­per, funded by news­pa­per com­pa­nies, writ­ten and read by girls all over the world.

Out of all the en­tries Izzy came first and she was in­vited to a pre­sen­ta­tion evening at Den­stone where she was awarded a £100 Ama­zon voucher by the head­mas­ter, Miles Nor­ris.

Head­teacher Lynn Board said: “We are ex­tremely proud of Izzy. She showed real con- cern for girls in Africa and how their lives are dif­fer­ent to hers.

“It would be amaz­ing if a news­pa­per com­pany took up her idea.”
