P4 returned from the Easter break to some great news.

Our very own Amber Webb has become the first pupil from Dalry Primary School to ever make it through the first round of BBC Radio 2’s 500 Word Competition!

The competition is a story writing contest and the BBC describes it as:

Entrants write an original story on any subject or theme in 500 Words or fewer and submit it online. If they win, their story will be read live on the radio by a superstar celebrity…like Julie Walters, Tom Hiddleston, Sir Kenneth Branagh, Jeremy Irons, or Sherlock himself – Benedict Cumberbatch. Each year, 10 million Radio 2 listeners hear, read and love these stories.”

If you want to know more about the contest you can read about it on the BBC website.

We were so excited to hear that out of 131,798 entries, hers was one of 5000 chosen to go through to the next round.

Well done Amber and good luck!
