The Western International School of Shanghai (WISS) is pleased to announce the winners of the WISS Writing Competition | Tiger George Who Came to Tea. 

As part of our ongoing 15th Anniversary and WISS Year of the Tiger Celebrations, we launched a unique creative writing competition. The competition was open to all students and encouraged students to write their version of the children’s classic, “The Tiger Who Came Tea” by Judith Kerr.  

We received submissions from our youngest learners in Early Year to our IB Diploma students. We are super proud of the fantastic stories our students submitted and the exceptional levels of imagination and creativity. True to the diverse international community of students at WISS, their stories of tea with Tiger George transported the judges to Mars, India, Egypt, and Korea. There were tales of adventure, courage, lifelong friendships, and making a difference in the world.  

Stories were reviewed by a panel of judges composed of WISS parents and WISS teachers who carefully read through and evaluated each piece of writing. They looked at the originality, creativity, structure, and flow of the content and overall story to determine the winners. Our judges had a challenging task to select winners as we have received so many excellent, high-quality story submissions from our student community.   

The winner’s stories will be published on the WISS website and will also be shared with the greater school community via the school’s social media channels. In addition, winners will receive a WISS Young Writer’s Award and gift hamper. All participants will receive a special WISS certificate and a surprise gift in recognition of their great effort and contribution as part of the 15th Anniversary and WISS Year of Tiger Celebrations.   Best of all, the winners will enjoy afternoon tea with the one and only Tiger George! (Date to be confirmed) 

We would also like to thank our panel of judges for supporting the students and the school with this great initiative. 

Congratulations to all the winners!
