Year 4 pupil scoops Partnership Christmas Jumper competition prizeWednesday 9 December 2015
This year’s Partnership Christmas competition was launched at the end of October, and the theme captured the imagination of local primary schools.
The brief was to design a Christmas jumper that incorporated good use of colour, pattern and texture, with students encouraged to use fabrics and collage. The judges were looking for joyful designs that showed how much fun the children had creating them.
Partnership Administration and Support Manager Louise Daley said: “We were completely overwhelmed at the huge response, when hundreds of entries were received from numerous schools across the partnership.
“Our guest judges, Professional Tutor and Art Specialist Alison Patterson and Liverpool Hope Artist in Residence Gill Taylor, had a really tough job selecting the winners.”
First prize went to Rebecca Reece, a Year 4 pupil at Our Lady and St Edward’s Catholic Primary School, who won a family trip to the theatre.
The two runners up prizes were awarded to Catherine Duncan, a Year 4 student at St Margaret Mary’s Junior School and Nell Huskisson, a Year 4 at Corinthian Primary School.
Birchwood Primary School, St Christopher’s Catholic Primary School, Holy Trinity Catholic Primary School, Greenbank Primary School and Bishop David Sheppard CE Primary School were also amongst the prize winners.
Winner of the miniature knitted Christmas jumper, crafted by Faculty Office Co-ordinator Sheila Hayes, was Lily McGaughey, a Year 1 pupil at Corinthian Primary School.
Louise said: “The likeness of Lily’s design compares to the real thing was uncanny!”
“A huge thank you to schools, staff and PPTs for supporting the competition.”
Artwork will be on display outside EDEN120 (ITE Administration Office) until Friday 18th December.
