For his poem on the war in Gaza, Franklyn French-Flynn has won the Woking Rotary Club’s Young Writer’s Competition on the theme of ‘Rebuilding’. The 12 year old will now go forward to the District final. “I thought about the rebuilding they will have to do after the war because there is a lot of damage being done to people's lives”, said Franklyn.
Though he “loves sport”, Franklyn also enjoys English and wants any future career to feature writing. Last year, in the same competition, Gordon’s students took first, second and third places. This year the Young Writer’s Competition also feature three Gordon’s students in the top three with Daniella Tinegate taking second equal place and Alice Odam and Tara Udassi third equal.
