House Reading Competition 2017
This year's Literature Live, the annual House Reading Competition held during the Festival of Literature for Senior School pupils, took place on the afternoon of Thursday 9th February. This was the final competition, as representatives from each House had already taken part in the semi-finals before the start of the Festival, and this year the competition was judged by poet and author Roger McGough.
All the pupils who took part deserve praise for their performances, which were of a very high standard, and Roger McGough commended the stage presence and confidence of the pupils. Congratulations to the winners:
Anya Wilson (Tee House) with ‘Jim’ by Hilaire Belloc
Anna Butcher, Heather Collier, Wizzy Farmer, Grace Latchford, Demi Sobowale (Tee House) with ‘If I Should Have a Daughter’ by Sarah Kay
Ryan Land (Collett) with ‘The the Impotence of Proofreading’ by Taylor Mali
