Whipton Barton Federation pupils win ‘Proud to Be’ postcard competition

Mrs Moretta, the headteacher at Whipton Barton Federation, part of our Trust was pleased to attend the ‘Proud to Be’ community event held at The Beacon Centre, along with Mrs Williams the assistant headteacher.

The staff were in attendance on behalf of four pupils from the school who were winners in the postcard competition. The children's entries celebrated the places in their local community that they are proud of.

Evie in Year 3 drew lots of aspects of the school; Logan in Year 3 drew his house, park, and church; Kiarna in Year 1 drew her special people and Laurence in Year 1 drew his house, the shops and his special tree. Each winner was presented with a book voucher, bookmarks, and chocolate!

Those attending the event were also treated to the premier of the new community film and song. The film was about people living and working in the community talking about the parts which are important to them such as the community centre, church, and pub.

 Louise Moretta. Executive Headteacher at Whipton Barton Federation said:

“I am delighted that four of our pupils were winners in the postcard competition. It was lovely to see their submissions and all the places they value in the community. The whole school is looking forward to continuing to build new connections with the community members that were part of the project.”

Moira Marder, CEO of the Ted Wragg Trust said:

“Everyone at the trust wants to offer their congratulations to the four superstar Whipton Barton pupils who took part in the postcard competition. Being part of, and supporting, the local community is a key part of the Ted Wragg ethos and it’s brilliant to see this being exemplified so well at the Whipton Barton Federation.”
