Tiree Pupils Chosen as Poster Competition Winners!

An Tirisdeach is delighted to report that 4 Tiree Primary School pupils have been chosen to appear in the Edinburgh Festival Schools Poster Competition.

Iona Weatherhead (P2), Liam Walker (P3), Maurice Wright (P2) and Jemma Kavanagh (P3) are the four lucky pupils whose posters were chosen out of a massive 6000 plus entries.

Their poster designs will now be displayed throughout the summer (from June 6th) in Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh, along with the other 150 that were chosen.

This is a massive achievement for Tiree Primary school and Shona Johnston, head of the art department commented ‘To give a sense of perspective on how amazing their win is, in 25 years of teaching I have had 4 pupils shortlisted so to have 4 winners in one year from our tiny school is nothing short of incredible.’

The School Poster Competition is open to all schools throughout Scotland and is run in conjunction with Edinburgh Festival which takes place throughout August in the capital. The designs will be displayed throughout this time and they will also be available to view on the Edinburgh Festival website when it goes live later in the month.

An Tirisdeach would like to say a huge well done to all four pupils, Iona, Liam, Maurice and Jemma. If you are in Dynamic Earth over the summer make sure you have a look for their submissions.
