The Primary Years are pleased to announce that Gemma McGorrin, a grade four student, was the winner of a flat screen television for her essay which she entered into the "MY MOM REALLY ROCKS" writing competition. The competition was generously sponsored by Ericka Cooke, a parent of the school and the owner of Girls Will Be Girls in the Southwest Plaza. Each child was invited to write an essay on why their mom really rocks. Mrs. Brown, the Head of Guidance facilitated the competition. Gemma's essay was particularly heartwarming, clearly expressed and well received by the judges. The Primary Years hopes that the McGorrin family enjoy their new television. All Primary Years students are encouraged to enter competitions.
