World Book Day isn’t really about one day, Stormont has been working on different aspects all week. Simon Mole, an accomplished poet led workshops with the girls at Stormont School remotely. Following on from that Lochinver House School and Stormont collaborated on a poetry competition. The Head of Stormont, Miss Louise Martin, judged poems written by the Lochinver House boys and the poems that our girls had written were judged by their Head of English, Mr Neil Latchford. It was a perfect joining of the brother and sister schools close in proximity in Potters Bar, Hertfordshire.
The theme of the competition was ‘Life in Lockdown’, why wouldn’t it be, when it is so much on our minds? So many entered and the standard of course was excellent. Being able to express ones self about something that affects us is good for the soul. Not only that, they put their knowledge and talent to good use.
World Book Day was celebrated across the world on Thursday, 4th March. Lovely costumes and inspiring characters came to life off the pages of books that Stormont girls love to read.
Lochinver Winners were Nick C in the Year 7-8 category, Alexis M in the Year 3-6 category and Nathanial in Pre-Prep.
Stormont Winners were Divisha B – Reception, Athena A – Year 1, Lola B-A – Year 2, Chiara C-C – Year 3, Sophia M-P – Year 4, Reva T – Year 5 and last but not least, Ruby L – Y6.
Lovely work everyone, well done!
