Kids’ Olympic support messages

COLOURFUL messages of support for sports men and women competing in the Olympics and Paralympics were created by children in Wraxall.

Youngsters at the village primary school all created their own designs on paper plates as part of the Fairy Dishes of Best Wishes School Challenge, which is being held in the run-up to the London games this year.

At Wraxall Primary School, each class decided on its favourite two designs and from the shortlisted eight plates, the 11-pupil school council voted for their favourite to represent the school.

The winning message, created by Florence, is now up against designs from pupils across the south east and west of England and can be voted for online at until Friday.

The school which receives the most votes will be awarded �1,500 and will also go through to the next round, when judges will decide on the gold, silver and bronze winners.

If Wraxall Primary School wins any money, it will go toward a project to level the school playing field.
