Prize day for poster win­ners

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

ARTIS­TIC young­sters who won the Advertiser & Ex­am­iner Armed Forces Day poster com­pe­ti­tion have been pre­sented with their prizes at spe­cial school assem­bly.

Pupils at St Ge­orge’s In­fant School, White Lion Road, Amer­sham, put on a spe­cial assem­bly on Tues­day for the Lord Lieu­tenant of Buck­ing­hamshire, Sir Henry Aubrey-Fletcher, as he con­grat­u­lated the win­ners of our poster com­pe­ti­tion. Seven-yearold Ava Lawrence was an­nounced as the win­ner and Ilia Mor­ri­son Guthrie, six, the run­ner up.

The chil­dren sang hymns for Sir Henry in front of an au­di­ence, which in­cluded teach­ers and fam­ily mem­bers of the school chil­dren.

Sir Henry gave a talk in which he ex­plained both his role as Lord Lieu­tenant and the role of Armed Forces Day. He then pre­sented Ava and Ilia with their prizes.

Speak­ing af­ter the pre­sen­ta­tion, head teacher Toby Long said: “I’m very proud. I’m very pleased that their tal­ents have been recog­nised and I’m very glad to welcome Sir Henry back to the school.

“It was lovely to see all the chil­dren were able to come and be part of it.”

Sir Henry said: “It was very dif­fi­cult to judge be­cause all the en­tries were ex­tremely imag­i­na­tive.”
