Bexley Literacy Awards Sucess

1 October 2020

Kyle Wilkinson and Alexa Uttridge both entered the Bexley Literacy Awards earlier this year while they were in Year 8. 

'The prestigious award is designed to encourage children and young people to delve deeper into the social, moral and cultural influences of a story.'

They had to read a book and write a response to it - Kyle's book was a picture book called The Arrival and he wrote a beautiful story to accompany it.  Alexa read Castle by the Sea and wrote a newspaper article.

Kyle WON the overall Secondary Category for the Borough

Alexa WON a Commendation

There was due to be an awards ceremony at Civic Offices in April but this has been indefinitely postponed.
