A school pupil from Garston won a trip to the House of Lords after school comes 4th in a national bible competition.
The KS3 pupils of Stanborough School all took part in a bible competition where they were tasked to study one item from a list of biblical events and had to imaginatively write about their chosen story as if they had been present.
There were 37 entries from Stanborough School; the pupils waited anxiously as they waited for the results and out of every school who attended, Stanborough Secondary School came 4th.
KS3 pupil, Mazvita, was delighted to be able to visit the House of Lords and receive her prize with her parents who were also just as proud of her.
Mazvita said: “Going to Parliament was a good experience for me and my family. I learned so many things about Parliament and about the depth of the competition itself.”
When everyone was seated at the competition award ceremony, they began to talk about the history of Parliament.
“They called the award winners to receive their prizes, finally they called my name and I was so excited to see what my prize was. I got four books, they were really good and all the authors of the books I was given were all Christian.”
After the ceremony, they were treated to afternoon tea, Mazvita said: “We all had afternoon tea and that was my favourite part. There were pastries biscuits and tea of course and then people started taking photos and a lady gave me a book to give to my RE teacher, Ms. Sinclair, and she was ecstatic to receive it.
“Overall it was a great day and I had an interesting experience and I would recommend giving competitions a try.”
