Congratulations to our deserving winners, Lois age 7 from The Priory C of E Primary School and Laura age 12 from The Ursuline High School.
Thank you to all that attended the Final of Our Merton School Art Competition 2014 at Cannizaro House on Tuesday. It was a wonderful evening celebrating Ellisons 25th Anniversary and the winners of the school art competition.
I would like to give a special mention and thank you to our supporters Cannizaro House Hotel, Hartley Fowler Accountants and The Wimbledon Guardian. The judges, local artists and members of Chelsea Arts Club; Chris Townsend, Susie Prus and Emma Van Klaveren Finlay.
To the 36 Merton Schools that signed up for our competition and to everyone behind the scenes and of course our Merton Mayor Krystal Miller who announced the winners.
The competition was fierce, we had over 2000 entries and the standard of your drawings and paintings was outstanding!
Infact the competition has been such a great success Ellisons have decided to make it an annual event and hope each year the interest and contest will get better and better!
The final 25 students who where shortlisted by our judges did extremely well to be selected and your teachers and families should be very proud of you.
Thank you again for you overwhelming support and interest in our competition and I look forward to receiving your entries in 2015.
