Library Logo Competition Winner

Posted: 4 November 2019

Many thanks to all those students who entered a design for the Library Logo Competition. Mr Brown, the school librarian, was really impressed with all the fantastic and creative ideas.

Congratulations to the competition winner: Ronnie Harries!

Her design really stood out, enabling her to win two lovely new books- and her logo has already been used on several posters within the library. Well done Ronnie!
