Update on Ted’s progress
He is now the South West winner of the Royal Mail Christmas Stamp competition.
He is now down to the final 22 out of 205,00 entries across the whole of Great Britain.
The Prince of Wales himself is choosing the two winners ( for the 1st and 2nd class stamps)
As a finalist Ted has won £500 for himself and £500 for the school.
Well done Ted this is absolutely fantastic.
In January the whole of KS2 were given the challenge to design a Christmas Stamp for the Royal mail Christmas Stamp completion. The two winners will have their stamp design used on the 2017 Christmas stamps. Out of more than 205,000 entries from across the country, there were 120 finalists and we are delighted to say that Ted Lewis-Clark in year 6 has made it to the finals in the South West category.
He is now in the running to win the regional final ( and £500 for himself and £500 for the school) and hopefully the grand final (Stamp produced to go on sale and a £1000 prize).
The standard of artwork from our KS2 pupils alone was outstanding but to become a finalist in a nationwide completion is indeed an achievement. We will keep you posted regarding the final outcome at the end of June. Well done Ted.
