Students chosen to design a very special Christmas card

We were thrilled to be asked by Councillor Hamida Ali, Leader of Croydon Council, to design her Christmas card this year.

Students used their artistic skills to create 7 designs for her to choose from, and this morning Cllr Hamida Ali, joined us for a live video call to thank the students for their artwork and reveal the winning design. She said it was very difficult to choose a winner as all of the designs were fabulous, but after some deliberation the winning design was declared as……..Wheatley Class with their adorable reindeer design.

Wheatley Class were presented with a framed certificate and Cllr Hamida Ali, wished our whole school community a very merry Christmas!

 

The progress my son has made is phenomenal, we couldn’t be happier.

We feel very lucky that he is in this school.
