As we get closer to Christmas, one of my favourite jobs is to judge my annual Christmas card competition with local schools in Flintshire.
This year, 12 schools took part – more than ever before – and the theme was ‘kindness and supporting one another’. This year’s entries from the children were all excellent – so it was a really difficult task to find an overall winner! – but I’d like to say thanks to all the children who entered the competition and all the staff at the schools who made it happen.
The overall winner this year was Bethan Catherine Edwards, who is in Year 6 at Ysgol Y Foel County Primary School, Cilcain, who received cards and a framed copy of her design. Bethan’s design was so lovely and it was clear that she spent a lot of time on it.
And a big thank you to all the other pupils who participated this year from Ysgol Y Foel, Cornist Park School, Ysgol Maes Y Felin, Ysgol Merllyn, Ysgol Sychdyn, Ysgol Pen Coch, Ysgol Gwernymynydd, Ysgol Y Waun, Ysgol Bryn Gwalia, Ysgol Bryn Coch, Ysgol Bro Carmel and Ysgol Rhos Helyg. See all the great designs below… they really were excellent!
I’d also like to extend a special thanks to Nice-pak International in Flint for their sponsorship and the chocolate Santa gifts and PG Framing Ltd in Mold, who kindly framed all the winning designs for the schools.
