As usual, when this year’s Dublin Literary Award came around, our students jumped at the chance to enter. We have always had keen ‘masters of the pen’ in this school; this academic year was no different. If you are a Thai citizen or hold a Thai passport, then you were free to enter the competition and potentially win a trip to Ireland.

The theme this year was ‘a journey’ and students were allowed to write in a style of their choice as long as it was in keeping with this theme. We had several entrants this year, although we were pleased to learn after the deadline that our Y11 student Mona had reached the shortlist and was invited to the Rembrandt Hotel to celebrate.

We are very proud of the efforts and achievements of all of our students in this competition and look forward to continued success.
