Earlier this year, Lily Mitchell (Year 8) and Freya Doyle (Year 7) won the ‘Screen your Story’ competition. This week, they attended a Gala and were presented with their awards.

Both of the girls’ stories are published in a book called ‘Stories from the Young’. Freya’s story has been made into a short film, which was subsequently screened at the Gala, while Lily’s story was illustrated by a professional artist. Comedian and actor Alistair McGowan hosted the event and presented the awards.

Well done to both Lily and Freya.
