Four Richmond House pupils were selected as finalists in the Harrogate Ladies College ‘Inspirational Women’ Essay Writing Competition.

The prestigious writing competition was launched to coincide with International Women’s Day and tasked children in Years 3, 4 and 5 to write about an inspirational woman in their lives.

Jack, Lia, Mia and Priya were invited to a special luncheon at the school where the winners were announced by Nick Hancock from Your Harrogate Radio Station and the essays were read aloud by inspirational woman.

We are so proud of our finalists and delighted to announce that all four received recognition:

Prize for the Best Handwriting – Lia

Prize for the Most Heartfelt Piece – Mia

3rd Place Overall – Priya

2nd Place Overall – Jack
