Fingers reach out from the vineyard earth,
Tendrils reach delicately, slyly at first,
The fingers engulf the frame of the vine,
Ensuring its qualities will be so fine,
Silently strangling, a clever snare,
Then the grapes flourish, filling the air,
Sweet and delectable, crushed so fine,
Then left in a bottle labelled wine.


25 was established in 1997, and since then we have successfully completed numerous short story and poetry competitions and publications.
We receive an overwhelming positive feedback each year from the teachers, parents and students who have involvement in these competitions and publications, and we will continue to strive to attain this level of excellence with each competition we hold.
