Last updated 4:41 PM on 30 November 2012

Each year, Sydney holds a "Youth Writing Competition" where students between the ages of 7 and 12 from around the world can submit any number of entries of writing in a variety of differing categories.  A selection of entries is then chosen to be published for the current year. This year, that publication is called ‘Key. Face. Cloud.'


Awards are given for First, Second and Third Prizes, Highly Commended, Commended and Encouragement in each category.


We congratulate all those students of our school who entered the competition.


In particular, we congratulate the following students who were awarded recognition as follows: -
