College ESOL students get inspired for Learning Resource Centre writing competition
26 January 2011
English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) students at Westminster Kingsway College’s King’s Cross Centre have participated in a student writing competition organised by the Learning Resource Centre. The writing competition was open to ESOL students at all levels and abilities at the centre and students were encouraged to make use of the resources available in the Learning Resource Centre as part of their research.
The final prize winners were announced by the King’s Cross Learning Resource Centre team and ESOL lecturers at King’s Cross at the ESOL students’ end of term party. The final winners, who each received a gift voucher, were:
- Entry 1 - Fay Ali – who had to write about a day in the life of someone they know or admire.
- Entry 2 – Rosa Ferdinado – who had to write about an occasion when they helped someone or received help.
- Entry 3 – Hanna Belay – who had to write about an occasion when they helped someone or received help.
- Level 1 – Viviana Bolanos – who had to write about something they did that helped their community.
Stephen Wickens, Learning Resource Centre Manager at the King’s Cross Centre said: “This year, we had over 80 ESOL students take part at King’s Cross, more than in previous years, and the quality of the entries was such that it was very difficult to pick a winner. We were thrilled that the writing competition was such a success and appreciated the enthusiasm with which students approached the competition, the hard work of the Learning Resource Centre staff and the links between our team and the ESOL team. The Learning Resource Centre organises enrichment events and activities throughout the year and we are very encouraged by the response to this competition.”
