Banagher College Junior Creative Writing Competition

Junior students at Banagher College recently had the opportunity to compete to claim the honour of being the creative writing champion for their respective years. Not surprisingly, the standard was extraordinarily high and narrowing down the entries to a short list proved extremely difficult. With that feat finally achieved, the public now have an opportunity to have a say in who claims the coveted titles – along with trophies and prizes – for each winner in first, second and third year.
