Pupils Creative Writing Success

April 4, 2014

During the Christmas term, members of the Teesside High School Creative Writing Club took part in the Inspired? Get Writing! creative writing competition. The competition was organised by the National Galleries of Scotland, the English-Speaking Union Scotland and the Scottish Poetry Library. It is supported by the Gordon Fraser Charitable Trust, the Scotsman and The Educational Institute of Scotland. Entrants were invited to produce creative pieces inspired by works from the galleries’ permanent collections.

Year 9 student Milly Parker submitted an original poem using ideas based on Away From The Flock, a modern artwork by Damien Hirst. Milly’s piece entitled The Perks of Not Being Half a Cow, was awarded first place in the 12-14 age group.

Sarah Bennett in Year 10 chose James Nasmith’s Back of Hand as the inspirarion for her story, and placed as Runner-Up in the same category. The girls’ achievement will be celebrated at an awards ceremony at the Scottish National Gallery on 17 April, where their work will be read aloud by members of the Scottish Poetry Library in front of a public audience.

Head of English, Amy Sanderson, said ‘Milly and Sarah should be extremely proud of their success in this prestigious international competition. We are thrilled that their creative talents are being recognised in this way, and hope th
at other students will be encouraged to take part in the future.’

Speech Day 2013

December 2, 2013

Our School motto of ‘Everything is possible’ was most definitely the theme of the day at the Teesside High School speech day on Friday 29th November. We were blessed to have author and inspirational speaker Brian Gault travel from Northern Ireland to share with our pupils, parents, visitors and staff his amazing outlook on life and his personal story.

Brian was born with no arms due to his mother taking just two thalidomide tablets while pregnant with him 52 years ago. Being born with no arms was obviously very difficult for Brian and his family to come to terms with, but he showed us all, that he has never let his disability stop him achieving his dreams.  (more…)
