We are incredibly proud of our students who have achieved excellent results in the Northern Beaches Young Writers’ Competition 2021. This competition received entries from over 400 students and it is pleasing to see the talents of our students recognised. Students were required to compose a narrative that included any derivation of the theme word ‘spark’. Hearing this news was a bright ‘spark’ within a somewhat bleak current world.
