The Jewish News, PJ Library and Wizo ran a story writing competition with the theme of ‘Perseverance’. The prizes and the event was sponsored by Mamilla Architecture and Design, a Borehamwood based company.
And the winner was… Ariella. Ariella is a Hasmonean student, who was encouraged to enter by Mrs Jacobson, the Director of Learning for English. Her 300-word essay took the theme and applied it to her own experience of competitive swimming.
The prize of an iPad for Ariella and another iPad for the English department was presented by the author Miriam Halahmy.
