Ophelia's poster

What a lovely day Ophelia had on Tuesday when she travelled to Edinburgh to collect her Regional Fringe Poster Winners certificate! We arrived only to find that they had really rolled out the red carpet for the 13 regional winners, the 2 runners up and the winning poster.

The exhibition will run from the 26th of May until the 29th of August 2016 in the light filled venue of Dynamic Earth.

Tegan, Lara and Isla had also caught the judges eye and their work will be exhibited with the 154 other shortlisted works.

4,979 entries were received this year from 175 schools across Scotland and it was particularly pleasing to see St Mary’s featuring in this fabulous exhibition.
Nigel Parkinson who draws the “Dennis the Mennis” cartoon strip, among others, spoke to the prize winners about the importance of creativity and the power of drawing. He then made the children promise to keep drawing. This is a promise that we certainly have no intention of breaking.
