Zara’s writing gets the royal seal of approval!

Year 6 pupil Zara Chaudhry has had the most amazing morning at Windsor Castle attending the final of the nation wide 500 Words Competition..  Zara was shortlisted and invited as one of the 50 runners-up from over 110 thousand entries. Zoe Ball hosted the morning which included live music and story-telling and was attended by famous faces such as David Walliams, Chris Evans and even Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cornwall.

The competition is in its ninth year and open to children between the ages of 5 and 13. Three winners are chosen from the two age categories (5-9 and 10-13). All of us at Gayhurst are so proud of Zara, what an achievement and what an amazing morning she has had!
