Five of our S3 pupils – Royce Miller, Vanessa Chong, Daniel McGregor, Oliver Platts and Euan Anderson – each won NT$1000 (new Taiwan Dollars) for taking part in the Share a Story competition, organised by the Taiwan Ministry of Education.
Royce, Vanessa, Daniel, and Oliver had their articles selected and published in the book, which was the end product of the essay contest open to all international pupils who had participated in the Taiwan Host Family Programme. The pupils were invited to share their stories about their experiences living in the homes of Taiwanese families.
Our pupils were eligible as they took part in an exchange with Jhongsiao Junior High School in Taiwan as part of their S2 language trip in May 2011.
They won around £21.50 each, along with a copy of the book.
