Withington without the ‘I’ Competition

What would Withington be like if 1 in 5  chairs in the classroom were empty? Without you or your friend?

Since the launch of the 100 Plus Bursary Appeal in 2005, we have raised almost £1.7 million towards ensuring that over 1 in 5 girls in School can attend on a Bursary place.  It is our aim that by August, we will reach the Appeal target, ensuring that over 100 girls per year will receive Bursary support at Withington.  

Girls in the Senior School are invited to enter a special competition for the Bursary Appeal, called Withington Without the 'I', to raise awareness about the Appeal and to celebrate the Bursary scheme to date.  Open to all girls in the Senior School, a winner per year will be announced after the 19th April who can then take up a fantastic prize of a party for 10 at the Yang Sing Cathay in the Trafford Centre.

Withington Without the 'I'

 To enter the competition, girls are invited to submit a piece of artwork (no larger than A3), or a piece of creative writing (500 words or less), or both, which considers the theme of Withington Without the 'I'.  What would School be like without our 1 in 5 Bursary girls? What experiences would we miss out on, what memories would we lose and how would our School be different?

The deadline for entries is Monday 19th April, when a winner from each year group will be chosen.  The winners will see their pieces reproduced in future Bursary Appeal brochures, as well as enjoying their fantastic prize, which has been generously donated by Gerry Yeung, School Governor and Chair of the Bursary Appeal Committee.

Good Luck!
