500 Words Competition
The Academy at St. James is very proud to of had the opportunity of holding our first community writing competition on Tuesday 26th February at Cafe West. We had 3 judges including one Judge who is an author called Jennifer Killick; author of a book which was selected for the Summer Reading Challenge last year. We invited all the children and their parents up for the event. Other judges we were lucky to have were Imran Hafeez and Philip Webb.
Our event was also supported by The National Literacy Trust and has been a great way to bring communities together.
We had so many positive responses to the event and we were proud to have lead such an occasion.
