Cultivating young, aspiring writers.

The Queen’s Commonwealth Essay Competition Workshop

Every year, we form a dedicated team to guide interested and potential students for The Queen’s Commonwealth Essay Competition, in the Junior Category. This year is no different.

The Queen’s Commonwealth Essay Competition is one of the most prestigious and widely recognised essay competitions for students globally. As an English centre, we are thrilled to help interested students make full use of this opportunity to build their portfolio — which is a fine addition to their future DSA or scholarship applications. The Junior Category caters specifically to students under 14 years of age born on or after 1 July 2007.

The workshop will be led by Mr Azrael Tseng, our Head of the O Levels with more than 10 years of experience teaching English locally and internationally, in both the public and private sectors. Over the years, we have seen many of our students achieve remarkable results in the competition from the Bronze Award to the Gold Finalist Award.

This March holiday, Academia has planned a 3-day intensive workshop to get interested students started on their journey before the final submission deadline. Your child will experience creative writing exercises adapted from literary fine arts workshops and review analytical content for the competition theme. We will also cover various literary techniques in prose and poetry to elevate their writing to a global standard.
