World Book Day Challenge 2019

Thursday 7th March saw the results of the Terry Sewell World Book Day Challenge announced. Terry, a children's book author, and former student of Fakenham High School, had set the challenge for students to write a short story. Winners would be published in his new and upcoming book, alongside his own work.

Fakenham Academy Students' creativity started flowing and winners were selected from the entries. Unfortunately due to illness, Terry was unable to join us for the winners to be announced, however we presented the certificates on his behalf to: 1st Place - Elisha W (Y8) 2nd Place - Kataleah C & Maddison K (Y7) 3rd Place - Sophie B (Y7) A further prize for a highly commended entry went to Isla H (Y9).

The stories written by the winners will be published in Terry's upcoming book, which he will announce the title of shortly, as well as this, Terry will be donating the profits to a charity of the Academies choosing. Well done to the winners of this fantastic competition, and we also thank Terry for his support and contribution to this competition. Mrs West
