Christmas Card Competition

It was a bumper year for entries to the CISC Christmas Card competition ‘Walking in the Light’ making the job of judging very challenging! The standard was extremely high and this is reflected in the number of ‘Highly Commended’ awards as well as the addition of a third prize in both the Junior and Senior sections. Thank you to all the wonderful art teachers, teaching assistants and technicians for al their time and support in who encouraging pupils to submit their beautiful work. The winners are here for you all to see!
