We were delighted to get so many winners at Eastleigh Borough’s Magic Tree writing competition!
Well done to all of you who took part, but particular congratulations to those children who were invited to attend an awards ceremony at Barton Peverill College on Thursday 7th July. Lucas Peacock, Luc Koffi Hodgson, Lizzy Vincent, Valentine Waters, Sheila Agyei Afari and Charlie Martin all received Highly Commended certificates from the Mayor of Eastleigh.
Teagan McQuillan was the star of the evening as her story was the winner in the 8 to 11 year olds category. Her story was read out by author Philip Hoare and the photo shows Teagan with the author and Mrs Greer. All the winning stories will be on display in Eastleigh library over the summer.
