ONE youngster won a badge of honour after his desgin was picked out to be a new Catholic school’s crest.

Holy Rood Junior School is expanding to become Holy Cross Primary School from September and the pupils were invited to enter a competition to design a new school crest.

Dozens of entries were sent in and, following judging by the governors, Samuel Garrett from Year 5 was announced the winner who received the congratulations of the whole school during a celebration assembly.

He was presented with a certificate and vouchers, donated by the governors as the competition prize.

Headteacher Tony Mc Ateer said: “I am keen to involve the children in the expansion process of the school so the competition was a good way to get the children thinking about the new name, the Mission Statement and that the uniform will be green with a vivid yellow crest from September.

“The excellent quality of the entries meant that the governors had a difficult task in judging the competition.

“Samuel’s design will not only be used on the new uniform and the school letterhead but also as the basis for a mosaic which we will be commissioning and which will be displayed in Holy Cross Primary School.”
