2018 A&P Show results
Well done Rachel.
She also entered a trilogy of poems. She had written and entered Gallipoli into last year's show and then her English teacher suggested she write two more poems to submit the trilogy for her creative writing. She received an easy Excellent (NCEA Level 2) for these - even though they don't normally accept poems in the creative writing module.
So it was great to share these with others. She won first place and received a Special Award for them too.
I also thought it was a brilliant idea, so I'm glad it did so well.
What a great effort.
I was going to just enter the one photo of Asher smiling so wonderfully (the bottom left photo) as it was a really special one from that week in hospital with her. And then I saw the "Photo Series" section where you enter 4 photos to tell a story. So we got the extra photos and entered that category instead. The photos weren't the best quality as they were taken on his phone. He took the last one on my phone (thus the better quality). So it was a better category to enter.
On the entry form we had to put a "name" to the entry.
It was entered in as:
"Moments of joy while parenting through the uncertainty."
She entered two roses and got a 2nd place on this one.
Well done Ruth. 8 certificates out of your 14 entries.
It was so much fun for everyone having entries this year. I think it has encouraged Hannah and Hezekiah to enter more next year.
I entered 2 photos that I liked, and it has encouraged me to plan a bit better and get some photos collected through the year (and not leave things too late again).
