Lord Provost Christmas Card   Leave a comment

Many pupils submitted beautiful artwork to be considered for the Lord Provost’s Christmas card this year. The Lord Provost visited the school and had a look at the work. It was a very difficult decision because there were so many great works to choose from but the Lord Provost decided that his favorite artwork was a beautiful drawing of the castle by Robert McCormack in 4th year. Here are some of the works which were shortlisted and also Robert’s winning work. Thank you to everyone who entered for all your hard work.
