Congrats to our Term 4 ‘Magic’ Competition Winners 👏👏👏👏. We say it every year and every term but the fact remains that you guys make it so difficult for us to choose winning entries but choose we must.
Congratulations go to everyone who entered, to write a story is a victory in itself and regardless of whether you are named in the winning entries or not, the greatest prize is to have written a story that is yours and yours alone.
Without further ado, it is an honour to present to you our winners.
