Author Visits English Students

On Wednesday 17th October, a group of Year 9 English students welcomed local author Julie Wassmer back to Folkestone Academy to further inspire and develop their writing talent.

Despite a busy summer finishing her new book and promoting previous works, Julie took the time to read and judge the students’ stories (written in Year 8) which she said were “of  a really high quality.”  Julie talked with students, read their work out and finally awarded prizes. 

The winning students were:

  • Bethany Lacey
  • Amelia Griffin
  • Bibi Wheeler

Credit for their work was given to:

  • Bethany Perry
  • Nicole Rachelwitz
  • Sian Allen-Baillie
  • Chris Alexandrou
  • Sienna Barham
  • Harrison Kussey
  • Freya Donovan
  • Milosz Trojszczak
  • Claudia Oakes
  • Taya Walters
