This year four pupils from HIU are entering the National Deaf Children’s Society (NDCS) Young Authors and Artists 2018 Competition. This year the theme is “Three Wishes” where those entering are encouraged to design or write about the fantastic and fabulous things they would get up to if they were granted three wishes. We have 3 entries in the ‘Creative Writing’ category, 2 acrostic poems from our year 8 pupils Stephen Corry and Lewis Lennox and a rap from our year 9 pupil Jordan Coggle. The boys have also entered a piece of work in the ‘Visual Art’ category, along with an entry from one of our Year 12 pupils Luka Valiukaite. We are hoping to build on our success of last years’ competition, where are now year 10 pupil Tom Shaw placed 1st in the ‘Creative Writing’ aged 12 – 18 category.
