A Christmas picture designed by Year 10 student Lily RK has won the annual Shaw Education Trust Christmas artwork competition. There was stiff competition as Lily’s design was chosen from all key stage 4 pupils from across the Shaw Education Trust academies throughout the country. Her prize consists of a certificate, a voucher and a poster featuring the winning design.
And that’s not all… thanks to local design print company Impression Ltd., Lily’s Christmas design has been turned into Tottington High School’s very own Christmas card and these will be delivered to our neighbours this coming week.
Lily’s art teacher Mrs Arthington says: “She has done brilliantly and I am so proud of her. Lily is really shining in Art and Design and I am really loving seeing her exceptional work develop.”
We caught up with Lily’s mum following the announcement of her winning entry, and she told us: “We are so very proud of Lily, and so glad you encouraged her to enter! Thanks again for all your support. Lily has always had such an amazing talent and it’s wonderful that you encourage her so much.”
