GREENWICH PUPILS SHOW ARTISTIC FLAIR IN CHRISTMAS COMPETITION
On Wednesday 6th December, the winners of the Greenwich Millennium Village Christmas card competition were announced. Students from the Millennium Primary School were invited by Greenwich Millennium Village, a joint venture between Countryside and Taylor Wimpey supported by the Mayor of London, to create a festive greetings card.
The competition saw some fantastic entries and the winner and runners-up were presented with gift vouchers and certificates. Asia Bucknal, aged 6, was the talented winner of the first place prize, while Sam Horrell, aged 8, Kiraha Agarwal, aged 4, Kalrav Agrawal, aged 4, came in second, third and fourth place. As well as a £50 gift voucher and certificate, Asia also received printed versions of her card to give to family and friends.
Chris Bladon, a Director of GMV Limited comments: "We were delighted to receive a record number of entries to the Christmas card competition this year. The designs clearly demonstrated the children's artistic talent and we would like to congratulate Asia, Sam, Kihara and Kalrav. To all the students who got involved and the school, thank you for the continued enthusiasm and support."
Joanna Gledhill, Headteacher of Millennium Primary School comments: "I would like to thank Greenwich Millennium Village for organising the competition for the fifth year running. It gave the children an opportunity to get excited about Christmas, show off their artistic skills and have the chance of winning gift vouchers. We are also extremely grateful to GMV for the £200 donation to the school."
