The results are in for the Primary School Art, Short Story and Poetry Competitions. Congratulations to all our winners, and well done to everyone who took part in this year's competition. The standard was very high in all categories. Thanks to all who took part, and thanks to the teachers and family members who encouraged and helped the entrants to get their work.
