Rochdale Observer - - FRONT PAGE -

THE win­ner of a Christ­mas card com­pe­ti­tion re­ceived a visit from the leader of the coun­cil.

Cal­lum McGeachie, a pupil at Red­wood School, was cho­sen for Rochdale coun­cil leader’s of­fi­cial card af­ter win­ning a fes­tive de­sign com­pe­ti­tion.

Coun Allen Brett in­vited lo­cal schools to en­ter the com­pe­ti­tion and 14-yearold Cal­lum’s de­sign, which fea­tures three fes­tive Christ­mas trees in a con­tem­po­rary style, was cho­sen.

His art­work was made into a pro­fes­sion­ally printed card as well as an an­i­mated elec­tronic card with fall­ing snow. It was sent to hun­dreds of in­di­vid­u­als and or­gan­i­sa­tions across Greater Manch­ester with Cal­lum’s name and school on.

Coun Brett vis­ited the sec­ondary spe­cial school in Rochdale to thank Cal­lum per­son­ally and present him with his own Christ­mas card, a £50 gift voucher and sweet treats for his class­mates.

The leader also took a tour of the school, in­clud­ing the re­cently added ex­ten­sion, and met head­teacher Clare John.

“I was very im­pressed with them all but par­tic­u­larly liked Cal­lum’s de­sign, of a tra­di­tional fes­tive scene cre­ated in a mod­ern eye catch­ing style.” ●●Calum McGeachie, 14, was cho­sen for the coun­cil leader’s of­fi­cial card af­ter win­ning a fes­tive de­sign com­pe­ti­tion; In­set, the win­ning card
