Prep school trio achieve success at Colwyn in Bloom Art competition
14th July 2016

A trio of Preparatory School pupils achieved success in a regional art competition recently.

The three Rydal Penrhos pupils took part in a Colwyn in Bloom competition, which is run to promote the town’s phenomenal success in the national competition and was open to all Prep and Primary schools in the area.

They were tasked with painting a floral design, and after the judges had run the rule over the entries pupil Cammie de la Mare Norris came away victorious in the Year 2 category for her wonderful effort.

There was further success in the form of pupils Anna Heyes and Pippa Roberts, in Years 4 and 3 respectively, came joint-first in the Juniors category after judges failed to split the two for their brilliant works of art.

All three pupils attended a special presentation at Colwyn Bay Town Hall on Wednesday, July 13, where they received their certificates from Mayor Cllr John Davies and Town Centre Manager Ingrid Lewis.

The presentation came the day before judges visited the town to judges this year’s Colwyn in Bloom entry, which has won British and Welsh honours for a number of years.

All winning entries will be displayed in the main room at the town hall throughout the summer.

Prep School head Roger McDuff, said: “This was a fantastic competition for a pupils to get behind, and I am delighted that Rydal Penrhos has achieved so much success.

“Cammie, Pippa and Anna all worked incredibly hard on their respective creations, something that no doubt impressed the judges considerably.

“Community initiatives such as this are fantastic for the region and I wish Colwyn in Bloom organisers the very best of luck for this year’s competition.”
