Christmas card competition!

Students were invited to produce a Christmas card design for St Laurence School’s Christmas e-card – either a festive photograph or a hand drawn illustration.  We had such an amazing response and received so many creative and beautiful designs. Mr Stewart chose the winning card, painted by Chloe Sweet, Year 7. 

With so many fantastic pictures submitted, we decided that we would like to share them with our local community.  We contacted three of our local care homes and will be sending some cards to them in the next couple of weeks, with messages inside the cards from our Year 7 students to spread some festive cheer.  

You can see all of the card designs below – click on the images for a closer look.
