Last night I was invited to attend St. Bedes R C School in Blackburn who have been running a very successful pilot scheme of the Childrens University during the last academic year.
At the end of the evening I was asked to hand out the certificates to all prize winners in the ‘Picture Perfect’ competition that has been running in Blackburn Junior Schools for the last 2 months. It was great to see the smiling faces of the children as I handed out their certificates.
I was also very impressed when I was shown the winning images – much better than I was expecting. These prints are to be displayed alongside our annual Exhibition in August. Hopefully this may generate more people through the doors with the possibility of generating more memebers.
I would like to take this opportunity in thanking Nicola who has been instrumental in getting the schools involved in this concept and moving it forwards.
Hopefully we can build on the success of this venture in the coming years.
