JK Rowling has sold 500,000,000 Harry Potter books world-wide and is worth $1billion US. Seems a good reason to encourage young people to tell stories and to tell them well. Of course other jobs depend on storytelling too: management, advertising, project leadership, proposal writing and more. So our next competition is for all children aged 3-14. I attach an outline of what is expected. There will be prizes and glory. We will publish a book with the winners’ stories in time for Christmas. Please encourage your children, grandchildren, neighbours etc to enter. They must send them in via their parents’ email with permission, name, photo and age by 20th August 2021.

Meantime, winners of the Cookery Competition were Sudip (Class 7):

Bedana (Class 7):

Samikshya (School Leaver)…..

Santosh (Class 6):

Kamala (Class 6):

Anupa (Class 5):

Prajina (Class 5):

The children’s recipes are full of interesting and homegrown ingredients. The judge, Emilia Rozanska, is the catering manager at Rupert House School in Henley-on-Thames, UK. She loved the healthy recipes with wide appeal that stood out with good instructions and photos.

Thank you to everyone who took part. Maybe zoom cookery lessons in the future! Meantime, an exchange of recipes continues with one of our prefects and her mentor at Millfield School, UK.
