Writing While the World Stands Still

Each week the English department at St. John’s will be setting students a new prompt to inspire them to write during these difficult times. At the end of each week, we will choosing the best entry and – with the winning student’s permission – we will be publishing it here for other students, parents and staff to read and enjoy.

St John’s English teacher Lauren Sankey explained “As an English department, we recognise the solace that both reading and writing can offer at a time like this. We want to make sure that St. John’s students can be empowered by their writing; as a form of escape or a way to voice how they feel.At the end of all this, the English department will be producing an anthology of all the weekly winners- a testament to look back on how the world stood still for a while”.
