For the first time this year we were delighted that one of our pupils was able to take part in the Lions International Essay Writing Competition. This competition is for pupils who are sight-impaired, giving another opportunity to express their thought and feelings about peace. Aiden Malik pondered on the theme of “Peace, Love and Understanding” and wrote a thoughtful essay, entitled “Irenka’s Story”, within the constraints of the 500 words set down by the competition rules. Aiden also received a certificate and prize from the Cheddar Vale Lion’s President at the school assembly. We wish him luck in the next stages of the competition.
