PUPILS at two Forfar primary schools took part in a competition to publicise the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the Glamis Gathering held at Glamis Castle last weekend.
The competition was organised by Forfar Community Council with chairman Mrs Isobel Ross welcoming along the schools’ two prize-winners to the council’s monthly meeting last Thursday evening.
The competition was judged by Mrs Georgiana Osborne, the Lord-Lieutenant of Angus, former Angus Councillor Bill Middleton and Mr John Richardson of competition sponsor Canvas Art.
The winner for Whitehills was Cerys Paterson whose design described what the Royal Jubilee means, whilst Jessica Cormie’s design of the Queen performing her famous “Royal wave” was chosen as the best design from the Langlands entries. Mrs Ross congratulated all the pupils who had taken part, saying the standard of entries had been commented upon by the judges.
Cerys and Jessica were presented with a framed copy of their design, whilst head-teachers Mrs Brenda Davie and Mrs Kim Walker of Whitehills and Langlands primary schools respectively received framed prints which will be displayed in the school. The winning entries also featured in the Forfar marquee at the Glamis Gathering.
