13th December 2018 - RET’s inaugural Creative Writing Competition was held at the Poetry Café in London. We were delighted that Jennie Roonie agreed to join us. The theme of the Creative Writing Competition was 70 Years of the NHS. Students had to stick to strict word limits, but could explore the theme in any way they wished. Entries ranged from the supernatural to war, but all managed to convey something of the key qualities of the NHS: care, compassion, courage, communication, commitment and competence. Each school held its own, internal competition and the winning entries were then judged anonymously. The results were: KS3 Joint Winners: Molly (King’s) and Sam (Turing House). KS3 Runners-up: Isabel (Becket Keys); Lena (Turing House); Isabella (Bristol Free School), Sacha (Bristol Free School); Luciano (St Andrew’s). KS4 Joint Winners: Lena (Bristol Free School) and Caleb (King’s) KS4 Runners-up: Abigail (Becket Keys); Jess (Turing House); Candice Li (King’s); Matthew (Bristol Free School); Stas (St Andrew’s); Ethan (Turing House). KS5 Winner: Madeleine (Bristol Free School)
