Danielle Cavey wins National Award

Danielle Cavey, a year 13 student, was short listed in the Pikihuia Awards for Maori Writers—in the ‘Best Short Story (in English or Maori) by a Secondary School Student’ category.

Danielle was awarded 1st place for her short story Lullaby—originally written for a Level 3 creative writing internal assessment.

This is an outstanding achievement considering that this is a national competition and of the 10 finalists Danielle was the only one from the South Island.
