Long Mead Primary School wins UK competition
Long Mead Community Primary School in Tonbridge has won in the Ivor Goodsite Hoarding Competition after help from national contractor United Living.
The competition, which across the UK and Ireland had 83 entries, gave the opportunity for the school to create colourful artwork focused on conveying important messages about the society in which we live.
Elizabeth Alexander, Head of School at Long Mead Community Primary School, said: “Children across the school, aged 5-11, worked hard on this project thinking of excellent ideas and messages, drawing, painting and collecting rubbish to create our final design focused on the theme: What can you do for the environment?
“It gives me great pleasure to announce that after all the hard work, the winners were announced and Long Mead Community Primary School with the help of United Living were one of them!
“The children’s creative art work is now displayed in our school playground for all to admire.”
Jacqueline Noon, Social Value Manager for United Living, said: “It was brilliant to see so many enthusiastic children and staff and their ideas were so creative, Long Mead deserved to be winners!”
Elizabeth continued: “I would like to take this moment once again to thank all those who supported us in this project and those in the community that are helping with future projects, giving the children at Long Mead School a breadth of experiences across the curriculum supporting and developing their knowledge and skills.”
Long Mead have now received prizes including trophies, medals, certificates, fun packs and will have inclusion in the annual hoarding competition brochure.
