AISM Megan Yap Shines from Down Under

Australia International School Malaysia (AISM) student Megan Yap from Year 5 achieved the Gold Award in the 2015 Write-On writing competition, an annual writing competition for New South Wales (NSW) students in Years 1 to 6. The competition is run by the Board of Studies Teaching Educational Standards (BOSTES), Australia, and is open to all primary students across the state and internationally.

“I was so happy when I heard the news! I recently completed an online writing course, it’s good to know that all my hard work has paid off,“ said Megan, who is excited to be invited to the New South Wales (NSW) State Library to attend a special presentation ceremony and morning tea, which includes an author visit and a tour of the NSW State Library. BOSTES also provides winners with the opportunity to have their piece published in a Best of Write-On anthology.

The competition used a photograph as a stimulus, and students were asked to compose an imaginative piece of writing. Entries were judged based on the student’s ability to demonstrate exceptional quality of writing by engaging the audience in a way that is creative, interpretive, critical and powerful yet maintaining a consistent structure appropriate for the type of text selected. Megan managed to capture all of these elements in her piece which evidently impressed the judges and earned her the Gold Award.
