Last week a group of our Year 5 and 6 pupils submitted entries into the Rotary Club’s annual photography competition. Pupils were challenged to submit a portfolio of 4 images with the theme “Community Spirit”.
The entries were judged by members of the Rotary club and members from local photography clubs, looking for the best set of photographs from across the local schools. The judges were very impressed with the standard of the photography and how the pupils managed to interpret the theme.
Kylan from 5N took his pictures at the Eden Project having taken part in the torchlight procession, ending the evening with a session on the ice rink. Daniel (6W) and Ben (6D) both submitted photographs taken in the school as part of the family art project. These can all be seen over on our Flickr Page.
Alice (6D) took her pictures at the Charlestown Boxing Day swim. It was too choppy for people to go in the sea, so the fire brigade stepped in to give the brave swimmers a good soaking. Alice was there to capture this display of Community Spirit! The judges were very impressed with the interpretation of the theme, the action in the pictures and the way the pictures worked together to tell a story. As a result, they chose Alice as the winner and she now goes through to the Regional final. Congratulations Alice!
Here are the pictures that she took:
