AN ‘ IN­CRED­I­BLE’ four Tiree High School pupils have been short­listed for the Ed­in­burgh Fes­ti­val Schools Poster com­pe­ti­tion.

To cel­e­brate the Fringe’s 70th an­niver­sary, Scot­land’s young peo­ple will in­spire the de­sign of the of­fi­cial Fringe pro­gramme, printed into 395,000 copies and dis­trib­uted to 44 coun­tries.

Con­grat­u­lat­ing the pupils, art teacher Shona Johnston said: ‘This is a pres­ti­gious and fiercely com­pet­i­tive open project which is given out to all Scot­tish schools with an av­er­age an­nual en­try fig­ure of 6,000 plus.

‘The short­list is whit­tled down to ap­prox­i­mately 150 de­signs which will be dis­played through­out the sum­mer from June 6 in Dy- namic Earth, Ed­in­burgh, where mil­lions of vis­i­tors will view their sub­mis­sions. You can also view them on­line from the mid­dle of May when the Ed­in­burgh Fes­ti­val site goes live.

‘To give a sense of per­spec­tive on how amaz­ing their win is, in 25 years of teach­ing I have had four pupils short­listed so to have four win­ners in one year from our tiny school is noth­ing short of in­cred­i­ble.’
