Three Old Palace Preparatory School pupils are amongst the winners of the prestigious national Mighty Nose 2020 poetry competition.

The Mighty Nose Awards is an annual poetry competition organised by The Fragrance Foundation, a not-for-profit trust recognised as the global authority for the fragrance industry.  Passionate about enhancing the image of the sector and inspiring the world to discover the artistry of fragrance, it provides a central source of educational information, as well as supporting new talent and driving growth. 

Marty the Mighty Nose is a place for teachers, particularly those with pupils aged 7-11, to find easy, inspiring and engaging ideas on extending learning through the sense of smell. The Fragrance Foundation does this by inviting Key Stage Two classes to apply their noses, and brains, to a curriculum subject or topic.

The poetry competition invites Key Stage Two pupils to take an aromatic approach to creative writing, asking them to write their own smell-inspired poems for the chance to win prizes for themselves and for their schools.

Three talented pupils from Old Palace Preparatory won awards for their creative entries. Many congratulations to Enyinnaya (Year 5) and Moriah (Year 3) for coming first in their age group category, and to Tamalia (Year 3) who was Highly Commended.

A fantastic achievement!
