Talented students have wowed teachers with their creative artwork for this year’s Christmas card competition.

Natalie Ellis, art teacher at Pool Academy, organised the competition to find an amazing illustration for a festive card that the school can send out to well-wishers.

All year groups were invited to draw, paint or photograph a design and a number of colourful pieces were entered.

This is the third year Mrs Ellis has run the competition but said she was impressed by the standard of entries this year.

Because the designs were so good Claire Meakin, Principal, has decided she will have to pick a winner from Year 7, Year 8 and Year 9 and 10. The three winners will receive five copies of the card along with an art pack from Turners Art supplies.

All entries will be given achievement points for their efforts. 

Miss Meakin said: “It will be an incredibly hard job to pick out the best card designs out of all those who had entered.

“The cards were so colourful and I was proud to see what talented artists we have in this school.

“Well done everyone and watch this space to see who wins.”
