Dodford First School's Hamish finishes in top ten in Young Writers competition out of 22,000

A TALENTED Dodford First School pupil fought off 22,000 others to make the top ten in the country in a Young Writers’ competition, writes Roman Filkin.

Hamish, from year three, had written and submitted a 100-word short story called ‘The Mysterious Soup’.

It was one of the winning pieces selected in the contest.

He was delighted to receive a prize of a rucksack filled with goodies and his name appearing on the young writers’ website.

Headteacher Lisa Parkes said: “All the children had enjoyed entering the competition and seeing their work published.

“We were all very proud of Hamish’s achievement.”
