METROPOLITAN POLICE CHRISTMAS TREE PROJECT 2019
Abigail in Y6 Rowan class was announced the winner of The Metropolitan Police’s Christmas Tree Primary School Poster Competition for the London Borough of Sutton.
Children in Primary Schools across Sutton and other London Boroughs took part in this competition which was to design a poster promoting the Metropolitan Police Commissioner’s Christmas Tree Project. This project encourages the public to donate a Christmas gift and these are then given to local children in need.
Every borough selected a local winner and Abigail, along with her mum, were invited to New Scotland Yard on the evening of 12th November to meet Police Commissioner Cressida Dick, collect a certificate in recognition of her participation in this project and to see the Christmas Tree lights being switched on.
Here it was announced that Abigail’s brilliant design came third among all the entries across the whole of London! Abigail said, “My mum and I went to New Scotland Yard to collect my certificate for winning this competition in Sutton and we got to see the Christmas Tree lights being switched on. We also listened to a choir singing Christmas Carols and it was so exciting! I then found out that my design had come third in London which made me and my mum really proud!”
We are delighted that one of our pupils was selected as the overall winner in our Borough and are proud of all of our children that took part.
