OHCAT Christmas Card Competition

Congratulations to our winners for the Orchard Hill Academy Trust Christmas Card Competition.

William’s design was chosen as the winner of the Primary School entries by the independent judge. His design will feature on the official OHCAT Christmas card this year.

Three of the entries were also ‘Highly Commended’ – that was Jacob (aged 6) Safwaan (age 11) and Raphael (age 15).

Independent judge Louise said: “William had created a beautiful entry with his simple effective design.  The message he sends us at Christmas is clear and sends a feeling of community, love and celebration with his vibrant colours.  The golden dove has a luxurious shimmer and looks striking against the blue starry sky.  Congratulations William!”
