The Queen’s Commonwealth Essay Competition is the world’s oldest international writing competition for schools, established in 1883.
With thousands of young people taking part every year, it is an important way to recognise achievement, elevate youth voices and develop key skills through creative writing.
The global spread of COVID-19, saw the lives of many Commonwealth citizens affected. However, through adversity, societies came together and stories of growth, community and hope continue to emerge. This experience formed the basis of the competition’s theme ‘community in the common wealth’.
Lola and Liliah have a passion for writing and submitted their essays to the Royal Common Wealth Society. They, and the Academy were delighted to hear that both students were awarded a very prestigious bronze award, testament to their talent and endeavour.
When discussing the students’ work, Mrs Dewland (Principal) commented, “I’m thrilled to hear that the students’ work has received such accolade. I’m looking forward to reading more of their work in the future”
