Congratulations to Anastasia Patralis and Jess Kioussis (Year 11) who both won the 2017 Melbourne Dickens Prize Competition. Jessica won the creative response section with her imagining of an episode in Great Expectations, written as though part of the original novel. Anastasia entered the essay section, where she responded to the topic: Despite the hardship and grim settings present in Dickens’s writing, hope is always to be found. The Year 11 students have studied Great Expectations in English this year. It is lovely to have the winners of both sections both from Fintona.
