Year 6 children at Bourne Westfield Primary Academy were delighted to hear the results of this year’s Bourne Rotary’s Writing and Art competition.

Peter Reid received first prize for his writing and will now go on to represent the District on May 17 in Market Harborough. Peter wrote a very moving story based on his great grandfather who served as one of the Desert Rats on the African front line in World War II. Cora Downing was awarded second prize for her lovely art work in the style of J.S. Lowry.

The children were presented with their prizes at Morton Village Hall last week.

Head of Year 6 Gillian Goodwin commented: “It was lovely to see the children celebrate their success – they have worked extremely hard and their finished work reflected this. At the time of going to press we were contacted regarding three further poetry prizes.

“We were delighted to learn that Bourne Westfield had swept the board with three amazing poetry entries. First prize went to Chantelle Kelly with second and third prizes going to Rebecca Fielding and Lucy Cowell respectively. The children received their prizes in a special assembly on Friday.”
