A Bromley school girl has been chosen as a finalist in a national Young Journalist of the Year competition.

Sasha Selhi, 10, who attends Hays Primary School, was chosen by a panel of judges after she wrote an entry about school changing rooms and how her school could use fundraising to help accommodate every pupils needs.

Miss Selhi’s entry to the competition, run by stationary company Stabilo, was chosen from hundreds of entries and the overall winner will be announced in October.

She said: “I am so happy, it is an opportunity that not many children get, I really feel that when we grow up, boys and girls should be able to do things separately without question and I though Young Journsliat of the Year was a perfect platform to share my thoughts. I am so pleased to be a finalist.”

The overall winner will have the opportunity to write their oen column for children’s newspaper, First News, and will win £1,000 of Stabilo products for their classmates.
