  1. To Mothering Matters
    Thank you for the wonderful opportunity for my daughter to take part in the writing contest, it was such a great exercise for her as she has not done any English since Grade 1, fortunately she loves reading! I am thrilled that she got a special mention, as she worked so hard on her story. She is devastated that she did not win, but this is also a valuable lesson in life. I hope that she will again rise to the challenge for the next writing contest. Looking forward to it!

    Thanks and kind regards
    Amanda Mély

    • Thanks, Amanda for the positive comments. We’re delighted that your daughter and others could use their English through entering the competition. And it’s great to hear that she is maintaining her language while being immersed in German at the local school. Well done!

  2. Thank you very much for the opportunity. My daughter was very excited to participate in your contest! Reading, writing and drawing are three things she really enjoys. I’ve just received the envelope and home and she doesn’t even know yet, but she will be absolutely thrilled with 2nd place! I’m very sure that this will also encourage her to continue and try harder. It is a great way to help children follow their dreams. I can’t wait to share the news 🙂
    Best regards,
    Michelle

    • It’s great that she gave it a go and hope she enters the next writing competition. The details will be published here on our website and on our Facebook page in spring. Thank you, Michelle for the feedback.
