Pupils Have Designs on Future
We are so proud of Grace R from Y5 who was part of a feature in the Express & Star newspaper on the 2nd July 2016 for her design contribution to their annual Design an Ad competition. The Express & Star received more than 1000 entries from 26 schools and our Grace was one of the few who went through to the finals. The designs were shortlisted and then printed in a special supplement for readers to vote for their favourites. Each child was awarded with a framed certificate, a £10 voucher for Waterstones and was reunited with their design. St Mary's also received a £50 voucher for Grace to spend on resources for her class. Telford Shopping Centre then added to the delight by awarding Grace with a £30 shopping voucher!
Children were invited to attend a special ceremony held at the Grand Theatre with prizes being awarded by the editor of the Express & Star, Keith Harrison. Grace's mum and dad and Mrs Skidmore sat proudly in the audience while Grace was called up to receive her award. Well done Grace you may have a bright future in design and advertising!
