One of the highlights of the year is my annual Christmas Card competition. I received over 100 designs from local children this year making judging particularly difficult. After much deliberation, I am thrilled to announce Ellen Cherry as this year’s winner with her cherubic angel watercolour painting.
I was delighted to meet her last week along with the rest of the school and present her with her prize. I explained to Ellen that when I showed her card to the Prime Minister he commented how professional it looked! Ellen will also visit Parliament in the New Year with her parents which I am really looking forward to.
I would like to thank all the children who took part this year. A huge well done to my runners-up, including Marcelo, Sylvia and Angus from Queensway School, Cianna from Heyford Park School and Emily from Bure Park Primary School who all submitted such wonderful designs.
Head teacher at Cropredy School, Phil Goldsworthy, said:
“I am thrilled that Ellen’s design was chosen to be on our MP’s Christmas card. Ellen is a worthy winner and a credit to our School.”
“Ellen’s family were present to see her receive the MP’s congratulations and said they were very proud of her achievement and thrilled to hear that so many people would see Ellen’s design.”
