Designer Christmas

Posted at 1:29 pm on 14th December, 2016

Year 7 and 8 students had a great opportunity to enter local MP Kate Green’s annual Design a Christmas card competition, sponsored by Cargill PLC in Trafford Park. Our students were offered the chance, along with other local Trafford schools to send in their card design for use on Kate’s official Christmas card.

In previous years Kate has received a great many entries with designs being chosen for the front and inside covers of the card. This year Kate was inundated with even more entries from schools around the constituency which meant she had another extremely hard task selecting the lucky winners.

Following the selection process FGS were informed that two of our year 8 students were lucky enough to have their designs chosen. Ella McHugh’s bauble design was a runner up meaning her design appeared on the inside cover and Lilli Jones’s reindeer design appeared on the back.

Kate said: “I received hundreds of entries from schools around the constituency. I was so impressed with the range of creative designs submitted and it was incredibly hard to pick a winner.

Miss Habu-Elfailat Design and Technology teacher said ‘both girls work very hard in Design and Technology and show excellent work ethic, their designs are excellent very well done.’
