Our Nursery Art Competition Winner

We are delighted to announce that Riley Demarco from our morning nursery class received a Special Merit Award in the Tesco Bank Art Competition for Schools 2018. The theme for nursery this year was ‘A Place To Live’.

There were over 2800 entries from all over Scotland so this is a huge achievement and we are all very proud of him!

On Saturday 23rd June, Riley and his family attended the awards ceremony at the Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh. He has received a canvas print of his work along with a fantastic art set which no doubt he will put to good use! His original painting which has been professionally framed is currently on display at the Gallery of Modern Art and his canvas is in our nursery foyer.
