Caitlin Awarded Parliamentary Press Gallery Certificate
Upper Fifth student, Caitlin, was one of the winners in the Parliamentary Press Gallery Writing Competition, "Write Now". The judges were looking for a factual piece of writing on a political topic and Caitlin wrote a personal statement about why she wished to become Loughton Town's Mayor. As a winner of the 10/11 Year Category, Caitlin was invited to tour the Houses of Parliament and 10 Downing Street where she met Nick Clegg, the Deputy PM and walked down the stairs with the pictures of the past prime ministers. Caitlin said that winning has encouraged her to enter other competitions and develop her writing skills further.
