Budding artists at a primary school in Marylebone received a special visit from an MP after their dazzling designs won the annual competition to design her offical Christmas card.
Karen Buck, Labour MP for Westminster North, joined hundreds of parents and pupils for a special assembly at Christ Church Bentinck Church of England Primary School in Cosway Street, to present the awards after the children submitted a series of designs to the competition.
Year five pupil Fatima Osman, nine, received a first prize of book vouchers for her design of a nativity scene while year six pupil Harry Li, 10, won second prize for his colourful portrayal of the wise men.
Ms Buck said: “The only tough job was choosing which design to put on the front of my Christmas card out of so many great options. Well done to the children (and teachers) from Christchurch Bentinck school for taking part. I’m delighted with the result.”
School awards were also handed out for good behaviour, friendship and outstanding effort in class work while Ms Buck and parents were treated to a performance of Tchaikovksy’s Swan Lake by talented pianist Thaddeus, nine.
