On Monday we went to London for The Shine School Media Awards. We left Plymouth at 6 o’clock in the morning and arrived in London at 10am. We walked into a giant big old building full of bright flags hanging up on the wall. The building itself had a nice expensive car parked outside. Everyone we met as we walked in was very professional and formal.

As we walked into where the workshops were being held, we joined in with a workshop about advertising. I believe this will help us to develop the website further and make the most of our social media platforms.

After the workshops we walked into this grand main hall where we were going to have lunch and where the awards were to be held. This was a massive hall where the big flags had been placed.

It finally felt like all the hard work in lessons and late nights had been worth it! 

After a really good lunch we started the ceremony. Unfortunately I didn’t win anything personally but Joao on our team won one of the biggest awards that there was to win. I believe he really deserved the award because I’ve seen how much he has worked. It was a really good experience and I hope to go again next year.

I believe i’ll have to work even harder next year, especially if we want to win more awards.

Overall it was a fun experience and I really enjoyed my time!
