Two talented pupils of St Winefride’s Catholic Primary, Little Neston, have achieved national success.

Emily Cronin, a Year 6 pupil, entered The Times competition to rewrite her own version of the popular children’s book, The Tiger Who Came to Tea .

Judith Kerr, author of the original story, spotted Emily’s enthusiasm and love for writing and consequently, along with the weekend editor, Lesley Thomas, awarded first place to Emily’s work in the competition.

The competition received 2,000 entries and to Emily’s delight, she was selected winner of the eight to 11 age group.

The school is extremely proud of Emily and feels it won’t be long before people are buying and reading her very own books.

National success has struck St Winefride’s not once but twice.

Many of the staff, who are great fans of Strictly Come Dancing , were delighted to discover that they have their own dancing champion amongst their pupils.

Year 5 pupil Michael Parry is a member of the Bedazzled Dance Centre in Buckley and, together with his partner, took part in The National Juvenile Championships in Blackpool in December.

Michael, who has been dancing for four years, and his partner were crowned not only the National Juvenile Ballroom Champions, but also the national Juvenile Latin American Champions.
