A pupil from Wrington Primary School has won a national poetry competition.
Esmée Cornock, aged 10, won the competition in the seven to 11 category of the Divine Chocolate’s Annual Poetry Competition 2018.
She received prizes including sweet treats from the chocolate company, book tokens and author Cas Lester’s most recent publication, Do You Speak Chocolate?
The competition in association with Christian Aid asked people of more than seven years of age to write a poem about Fairtrade chocolate.
A spokesman for the school said: “We are thrilled for Esmée and hope this will encourage her in her writing in the future.
“We will certainly be encouraging pupils to have a go at penning a winning entry next year.”
Esmee said she was very surprised and extremely happy and shared the good news with her friends immediately.
