Lottie wins second place in art competition
Year 7 student, Lottie, was today stunned to discover that she had won second prize in an art competition open to schools from across Watford and the surrounding area. The competition was set up by the Rt Hon Richard Harrington, MP for Watford, to commemorate 100 years since the Representation of the People Act 1918. As Mr Harrington was visiting Croxley Danes today in a visit delayed from December by snow, he was able to meet Lottie in person and present her with her prize: a selection of gifts from the Houses of Parliament and a certificate.
Speaking at an earlier Croxley Danes assembly, Mr Harrington described how the art had been judged without the students' names or schools being revealed. It was a good day for the Danes Educational Trust's schools, as first prize was awarded jointly to two students from Croxley Danes. Mr Harrington was then able to have a brief tour of the school site, visiting the new Dance and Drama Studio with Mr Sutherland.
Well done to Lottie for this tremendous achievement and thank you to the art department for encouraging all the students to take part.
