Last updated at 17:02, Thursday, 01 May 2014
A GROUP of pupils have helped their school reach a fourth consecutive final of a garden design contest.
• Themes of war and peace inspire Barrow pupils
• Walney pupils praised for their WW1 memorial garden
• Millom School pupil is the one and only among finalists
• Dalton competition finalists have designs on prize
Dane Ghyll Primary School is a finalist in the Holker Garden Festival design competition for a fourth year.
The North-West Evening Mail hosts the contest in association with Holker Garden Festival and Crooklands of Dalton.
The theme was to create a First World War commemorative garden design in 3D or collage.
The Evening Mail was inundated with high quality entries from students bidding to have their designs displayed at Holker Garden Festival between May 30 and June 1 and win top prizes courtesy of Crooklands of Dalton.
The judges were so impressed with the standard of the entries that they increased the number of finalists from three to five. Two schools were also highly commended.
The finalists are being invited to Holker Garden Festival on Saturday May 31 where they will see their designs being exhibited in the Garden Theatre. They will attend a presentation revealing the overall winner and placings. Crooklands of Dalton will present the prizes, and the finalists will also receive certificates from Holker just like the other exhibitors at Holker, with the top garden being awarded Large Gold.
Each day this week we will introduce a finalist.
Year Four children from Dane Ghyll, in Barrow, have create a red, white and blue themed garden to represent the flags of the First World War allied countries. Their garden, designed to “inspire and educate both young and old”, has five sections including a memorial, trenches, biplanes and a war horse.
Year Four teacher Scott Macmillan said: “We are really proud that Year Four have been chosen for a fourth year running to go to the final of the Evening Mail Holker Garden Festival competition.
“The children have loved learning about the First World War and they have enjoyed making their model.”
Dane Ghyll is a previous winner of the competition.
The Barrow school join Dalton St Mary’s CE Primary School in the final.
The finalists will also feature in the official Holker programme.
