Gabriella reaches final of UK writing competition

Badminton Junior School has a budding writer in their midst as one of their Year 4 pupils, Gabriella, reaches the final of the Royal Mail’s National Letter Writing Competition.

The Royal Mail’s Young Letter Writer Competition has been running for more than 37 years and the theme of this year’s competition is ‘What’s your dream job?’. Entrants were asked to write a letter to an employer applying for their dream job.

Gabriella’s letter detailed her desire to become an Actuary, like her father, because she loves Maths and has an aspiration to help rebuild people’s lives after a catastrophe.

The Royal Mail received and judged nearly 100,000 letters and next month a panel of judges, including TV presenter Helen Skelton, will select the winners.
