All Primary Schools on St Helena have taken part in a Design a Stamp competition as part of their creative curriculum. This involved designing a stamp to represent the Island of St Helena.
Primary Advisor Zoe Robinson commented:
“The standard of entries was very high and it was an extremely hard task for the judges to decide on the three top designs from each school – and then name an overall winner.”
Entries included stamps with images of the Wirebird, the RMS St Helena, the Heart-shaped Waterfall, Rupert’s, Prosperous Bay Plain and other scenic areas of the Island.
The following winners in each primary school have been presented with prizes and are warmly congratulated:
Harford Primary School: 1st place: Kaylin Knipe
