Mollie’s Christmas Snowman is a winner!

Congratulations to Mollie D (Year 11), overall winner of our Christmas card design competition. Mollie’s colourful snowman-making scene will grace our printed cards, delivered later this week. With just a simple “Season’s Greetings” message inside, the cards are ideal to send to friends and family and will be on sale for £1 each or in packs of five for £4 including envelopes if you would like to buy some. Ask at Reception!

Worthy runners-up, in joint second place, were Harry T (Reception) and Izzy W (Year 6), whose designs are also shown here. Well done to them, and to all who entered – we had some excellent designs this year!
