Win With Words Competition
Every year Remuera Library runs a writing competition called Win With Words for Year 7 and Year 8 students across the Remuera and Orakei area.
This year there were 300 entries across nine schools. RI students did exceptionally well and we are pleased to announce that Zoe Bews-Hair (Rm 36) received 1st place in the Year 8 competition and Alex Reid (Rm 15) received 2nd place in the Year 7 competition. In her comments the judge praised Zoe for crafting a totally original story that left her feeling calm and happy. She also shared her delight at Alex's use of words such as 'verdant'.
The competition also awarded several special prices and named several runner-up entries. RI students proudly featured among these prizes as well.
