Year 9, Ben, Wins Festive Competition

In October, Wellacre invited staff and students to start thinking about the festive season early and enter our first ever competition to design a new Christmas card for the school and spread Christmas cheer throughout the community!

We were delighted to receive a range of original Christmas card designs featuring Father Christmas, reindeer, festive songs and even a Christmas Zoom gathering!

From all the entries, Principal, Miss Wicks, selected the top three designs who will win Housepoints.

Congratulations to Ben in Year 9.  It was his Christmas interpretation of the Wellacre logo, which was chosen to create the design for the school’s official greetings.  The design has been digitally recreated and printed professionally, and will be used to send out to community members across Trafford and beyond. 

The competition asked our young artists to use any material of their choice and we received entries in a range of paint, pencil, and computer-aided design.

Principal, Miss Wicks, said:

“Thanks to everyone who entered our Christmas card competition; there were so many excellent designs but the Wellacre logo really stood out and we’re proud to see Ben’s design featured on our card this year.

“We’re looking forward to posting our Christmas cards and wishing everyone all the very best for 2021, after an incredibly challenging year.”
