The warmth we received from the staff there was amazing.

There was an extremely high standard of entry as participants competed with their peers from every corner of the Commonwealth. The Royal Commonwealth Society was delighted to announce that over 2,000 entries won awards – 16 from Mauritian participants – with the top prizes going to New Zealand, Guernsey, Canada and Hong Kong.
These top winners will be flown to London for a special award ceremony later in the year.
We then took part in a writers’ workshop, which was a good learning experience.
We spoke of serious matters, such as the mindset needed to write and write well and less serious matters such as the zombie apocalypse and Taylor Swift.
We encourage you to be creative in your response to our topics.
If so, the Commonwealth Essay Competition is definitely for you.
