Junior Chirnside Competition

Virginia Collingwood —

The Junior Chirnside Competition asks students in Year 9 and 10 to illustrate a passage of a Shakespeare text that was studied in their English class during the year.

At the end of 2021 students worked hard creating a static image that symbolically represented a quote from a Shakespearean text. Every year the competition is great; however, this year the sheer number of top-quality entries was outstanding. This made the judges’ jobs extremely difficult. 

After careful consideration, the Year 9 prize was awarded to Gabby Wright for her intricate illustration of A Midsummer Night’s Dream (above). 

The Year 10 prize was awarded to Faizah Erfani for a symbolic and layered portrayal of The Taming of the Shrew (below).

Congratulations to both our winners, as well as to those who were highly commended in the competition.
