​Students from 3LO entered the 2015 Schools Poetry and Short Story Competition. Three of the students have been selected to progress into the next round of judging, and as a result have been awarded with an "Achievement Award".

Annaleese, Matthew and Satchen have been selected to have their short story published in the book Read, Write, Repeat.

Here is Annaleese's story:

THE AQUA FOREST

The blanket finally came off the earth like a purple and black butterfly just coming out of  hibernation. The day was beautiful! A cute baby panda called Leah started running quickly across the creaky, wooden bridge. Leah thought she would play on the twisty, twirling vines. She had awesome white polka-dots surrounded by shiny black on her enormous, furry body. She had beautiful eyes that were as blue as the magnificent twinkling sky. Leah was the princess of the Aqua Forest and she was with her mother, the Queen. Her name was Anna. Her eyes were like the muddy puddles of the forest.

 

Suddenly… A humungous cloud appeared out of nowhere in the sky. It started getting gloomy in the Aqua Forest. All at once the lightning whizzed past and STRUCK a nearby tree, splitting it in half.  Anna screamed for Leah to get to cover. Leah was so frightened!  She wrapped herself tightly in a bunch of leaves. Queen Anna’s heart started beating as fast as a cheetah running after its dinner. She thought that Leah was getting hurt.

 

An evil wolf growled furiously. He came from the dark side of the forest where no-one ever went and was looking for a nice fat juicy panda for his lunch. The evil wolf found Leah’s cocoon……...  Leah tried to run away into the dark forest but the crazy wolf started chasing her and she didn’t make it. The wolf pounced on her and took her to the creepy castle in the dark forest and threw her behind bars in the dungeon. She thought she would never get home!

She tried to get herself out of the dungeon, but she couldn’t. Then she heard scratching, it was another captured panda who had stolen the keys from the evil wolf. They escaped quickly to the forest.


Anna saw something appear out of the darkness in the forest and it started coming closer. It was…the panda carrying Leah to safety! Anna was as happy as a clown squeezing its nose at the circus. They all returned home to the castle and thought there would be no more drama ever again.
