PUPILS at Shafton Primary Academy got creative this Easter as they took part in an egg-decorating competition.

Following on from their recent success in designing posters to decorate several Barnsley bin lorries, pupils put their creativity to the test again with their new egg decorations.

All entries were displayed in the school, allowing pupils to show off their work to classmates and parents, who were invited to take a look at the artistic displays after the school’s Easter assemblies.

The finished displays were judged by a three-teacher panel, who awarded a winner of each class with a large Easter egg, while runners-up were given a medium-sized egg.

Principal Jo-Anne Charalambous said: “I’m so impressed with the standard of Easter creations by our pupils. They put so much effort into their competition entries and I hope they enjoyed making them.

“We are always looking to inspire our pupils to unleash their imaginations and develop their creative talents, and competitions like this are a fantastic means of encouraging children to show off what they can do.

“It was fantastic to have the whole school take part in this cracking competition and I loved seeing the variety and quality of the different designs. Congratulations to everyone who took part.”
