In Semester 1, Year 9 Literature students engaged in the creative writing process with each student producing a range of work. From this, they chose to submit one piece, either a poem, short story or flash fiction, to the Australian Jacaranda Writing Competition.

Congratulations to Ella Jarick who placed second in the Year 7-9 category with her short story that reflected on the prompt ‘I should have been more careful’. She explored the effects humans are having on marinescapes through her touching narrative about a mother whale losing her baby to a shark attack due the presence of a fishing boat.
