Chris Grayling ran his popular Christmas card competition again this year amongst infant and junior schools in the area. Simon Ofield Kerr, Vice Chancellor of the University for the Creative Arts lent his expertise to judge the entries along with Chris. The winner was Patrick Moilliet, aged 6 from St Christopher’s School in Epsom. Not only will Patrick’s design feature on the front of Chris’ official Christmas Card, but Patrick and his family enjoyed a trip to the House of Commons to collect his winner’s trophy.
‘I am delighted to announce that Partick Moillet, aged 6 from St Christopher’s School is the worthy winner of my Design a Christmas Card Competition 2014. We had some excellent entries for the Christmas Card competition this year and picking a winner wasn’t easy for any of the Judges. Many congregations to Patrick for his brilliant design.” Chris

Head Teacher Values Awards were given to those children who had particularly demonstrated the school values: honesty, helpfulness, kindness, equality, politeness and patience as well as respect are the values chosen by the children, forming the basis of their Behaviour Policy. Mrs Cunningham, the Head Teacher said we represent our values and achievements with the jammie dodger symbol. The biscuit represents our hard work and effort whilst the jammy heart reflects our values. It is important that we appreciate both!
