SCHOOL’S EASTER ART PROJECT PRODUCES EGGCELLENT RESULTS

SCHOOLS’ EASTER ART PROJECT PRODUCES EGGCELLENT RESULTS

Pupils at Murray Primary School have harnessed their inner Picasso to pick up the top prize in a school art competition. 

EK, East Kilbride delivered three gigantic eggs to Murray Primary, Kirktonholme Primary and St Kenneth’s Primary, and challenged the budding artists to decorate the monster sculptures with an Easter theme.

Following two weeks on display in the centre and over 2,000 votes, Murray Primary’s colourful spring themed egg came out on top, with the school picking up £300 worth of vouchers for Waterstones and a £300 gift card for The Works.

Commenting on the competition, Irene Tremble, Headteacher at Murray Primary, said: “The pupils loved taking part in the competition and were full of creative ideas, from Lego birds to origami flowers and cotton wool sheep.  It was a lovely surprise when we heard we had won, particularly when we saw the fantastic eggs from the other schools. We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who voted for Murray Primary.”

EK East Kilbride Centre Manager, Alan Smillie, added: “All the schools were up for the challenge and pulled out the stops to create three wonderful Easter sculptures.  Although Murray came out on top in the voting, it was a tight competition with huge support for all three schools. Congratulations to all the young artists who took part, and well done Murray Primary on winning the competition.”

To acknowledge the incredible creativity shown by all the pupils, no school is going away empty handed, with both Kirktonholme Primary and St Kenneth’s Primary picking up a £300 gift card for Waterstones book store.
