We are very proud to announce that our Lower Sixth Journalism Blog ‘The King’s Speech’ has won a ‘Rising Stars’ award from the Shine School Media Awards.
This year’s writers are Sophie A, Imogen B, Sarah B, Felicity Q and Jack W. The winners are invited to a gala lunch in London in September.
“The Shine School Media Awards is a national competition that rewards a diversity of talent from secondary schools across the UK who work on the writing, editing, design and fund-raising for a school newspaper, magazine, podcast or website. The culmination of each year’s Shine Awards is a spectacular summertime gala awards ceremony held in the City of London. The significant benefits of starting a Shine project include an enrichment of the school curriculum, an incentive to creativity and the chance for pupils to win national recognition and in the process enrich their CV and applications for university or college. The Shine Awards is an endeavour of The Stationers’ Foundation, the charitable arm of The Worshipful Company of Stationers and Newspaper Makers, one of the UK’s ancient livery companies.”

This is a fantastic achievement and very well deserved. We very much look forward to hearing how their trip to London goes.
