Congratulations to our Art pupils who won first prize in Squire’s Garden Centres “Decorate A Christmas Tree” competition.
The children had to design and make their own tree decorations and hang them on a special tree at Squire’s. We beat off local competition to win the best-decorated tree as voted for by customers at Squire’s in Wokingham. St. Teresa’s School came second with their beautifully decorated tree.
The pupils made all of the decorations entirely from recycling, with a poignant “Save Our Seas” message. The children made paper chains, a paper bauble featuring Sir David Attenborough, and at the top of the tree, instead of an angel there is a turtle made from a plastic cup cake box!
Sarah Squire, Chairman of Squire’s Garden Centres commented, “Both schools created some beautiful decorations and we were very impressed with their skills. The recycling theme from Holme Grange School was unique, and it really captured customers’ imaginations. In fact we had so many people voting that we had to print more voting slips! It was a pleasure to have all the children at Squire’s while they decorated their trees, and we will be rewarding the winners with goody bags.”
The school Christmas trees will be on display at Squire’s in Wokingham until Sunday 1st December.
