Year 12 student, Aya Ali, entered her creative poetry to the Wolverhampton Mayor’s competition to celebrate the King’s Coronation and is now in the final.

Aya helps to run the Eco Club where students have been writing poetry about the environment. She was delighted to hear that her amazing work has reached the final and is now one of 5 finalists in the 16+ category.

This is a great achievement as the organisers say that the quality of writing created across the City was fantastic.

All finalists will be published in the commemorative book and each finalist will receive a free copy.

The final judging panel will meet to decide the overall winners and runners up in each category early next week. Winners will be invited to afternoon tea with the Mayor.

Well done and good luck Aya, we are very proud of you!
