Anthony Byrne MP, Federal Member for Holt, visited Mossgiel Park Primary School for a very special presentation on Monday morning. Mr Byrne said ‘it was fantastic to present the Young Writers Awards to the very talented students at Mossgiel Park Primary School. I congratulated the Principal Jennifer Scott, teachers and parents for this wonderful initiative’.
At Mossgiel Park we believe that the gift of Literacy is the most important experience we can share with our children. Recently, we celebrated the annual Young Writers’ awards at our special school assembly, recognising the talent, efforts and improvements of our students’ said Ms Lynette Pentland from Mossgiel Park Primary School.
‘There was great excitement when the winners were announced and presented with a medal, certificate and book by Mrs Jennifer Scott the Principal and Mr Anthony Byrne the Federal Minister for Holt. There were 2 winners and a highly commended for each year level and 2 Young Writers of the Year awards’, said Ms Pentland.
‘Over the past 2 years the school has implemented a whole school writing program called VCOP/Big Write and there has been a marked improvement in the children’s writing. Our NAPLAN results for writing this year were outstanding. Our Young Writers competition gives all children across the school a chance to showcase their writing’, said Ms Pentland.
‘The children have enjoyed a wonderful year of developing and improving their writing skills. We would like to congratulations all the Young Writers at Mossgiel Park Primary School and thank them for sharing their ideas and stories with us. The staff and parents are very proud of their writing achievements’, said Ms Pentland.
