The annual Senior and Junior English Prizes are being held tomorrow, Friday, from 6.30 pm. Seniors go to Cotton, Juniors to Elrington. Candidates should give their names to their teachers by Friday breaktime. The Senior paper consists of two prose extracts for comparison, two poems for comparison, and a general essay on the nature of literature. The Junior paper gives two poems for discussion and comparison, and then a prose composition (in any form) based on an idea from these poems. As with all subjects, the prizes will be book tokens for the purchase of suitable books, which will be presented at the prizegiving on St Columba's Day.
