Congratulations to the previous winners of Word of the Week!
09/11/18 Winner: Dumkele O, D07: “The end of the great war was near. Word had broken out amongst the weary & emotionally-drained soldiers that an armistice had been set in motion to hopefully put an end to the misery that had befallen the world.” (Box of Maltesers, 3 house points).
02/11/18 Winner: Chukkie O, D03: “ The advert was designed to make viewers feel nostalgic for simpler times, with fewer technological distractions.”
19/10/18 Winner: Lottie H, K01: “The laconic dignity of the owner didn’t help him when he was forced to make a speech. Even with his garish, confident outfit and the cajoling of the crowd, his speech was still just a few words, separated by a long hiatus.” (5 house points and box of Maltesers)
12/10/18 Winner: Dumkele O, D07: “ Several moments passed before the defendant was finally able to produce a poorly constructed, laconic response, which he used as testimony to plead his innocence.” (3 house points, box of Maltesers)

14/09/18 Winner: Euan W, K04: “Mrs May refused to abandon the Chequer’s Plan; surrendering to the EU would decimate the shred of dignity she had worked so hard to conserve.” (Box of Maltesers, 3 house points)
