Grace Wins!

Grace Owers in Year 6 has won a National award for her brilliant Climate Change poster. Grace and a group of friends attended the awards ceremony at the Natural History museum in London on Tuesday. Much to Grace’s amazement and delight she won the national prize. Grace was awarded a cheque for the school of £1000 and prizes for herself. The competition was organised by an Energy company. Graces poster features in a calendar produced by the company. You can take a look at Graces poster displayed on the board by the office. Very well done and thank you Grace! The Eco Warriors will plan how we use the £1000 in our efforts to make the school more Eco friendly.
