Creative youngsters go with the flow to win competition
Pupils at Mersham Primary School have won a competition to design a water system of the future as part of the Ashford Festival of Art and Technology.
The delighted children were presented with certificates for their success.
The competition, launched in September, invited youngsters to design a water system to provide clean drinking water, devise a way to clear plastic and other pollution from the sea and rivers, or create a system to supply water to outer space.
As winners, Mersham Primary also received a hamper of art supplies donated by Neil Prodrick, manager of Wilko in Park Mall, Ashford, at Monday’s school assembly.
Becky Withey, 23, events manager at Ashford’s Centre of Creativity and Enterprise, said: “Mersham Primary School’s designs were so creative and the pupils wrote detailed stories on the back of their pictures explaining their water systems.
She added: “Their ideas were beautiful.”
