N
ow in its third year, the competition encouraged pupils from the Upper, Middle and Lower parts of the school to choose an historical site or place of interest and submit photography or a piece of art.  Following the format and quality of entries received last year, the competition was extended and pupils were also permitted to enter models, paintings and sketches.
T
he school received a large number of truly fabulous entries.  Detailed research and precise fact finding was clearly evident with children also demonstrating wonderful skills in their presentation.  Impressive submissions, to name a few, included Hampton Court Palace, The Leaning Tower of Pisa and La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona.  Winners were picked from each part of the school and Aitchisons is pleased to announce the chosen entries that ticked all the boxes and wowed the judges.

The winner in the Upper School category with his photography, sketches and commentary of the Former Federal Reserve Bank was Marley Maidment (age 13); winner in the Middle School category with a wonderful studded art board and photographs of Hampton Court Palace was Angel Clarke (age 8); and winning the Lower School category was Oliver Millar (age 5), with his stunning photographs and fact finding of Chateau Clisson in France.  Prizes include iPad Minis and runners up each received gift vouchers to spend at the Berkhamsted Arts and Crafts Store.  The Runners up were  Zorane Khan (age 9), Ben Yadav (age 9), Alec Green (age 6), Lucy Balshaw (age 8), Garla Poulter (age 8), Meredith Ryder (age 7) Matthew Rogers (age 5), Sam Patel-Espin (age 11), Sam Sanders (age 10) and Oscar Markwort (age 7).  Children were awarded with their prizes during School Assembly.
The
panel of judges from Westbrook Hay included Stewart Woodward (Deputy Head), Victoria Gibbs (Head of Lower School), Donna Milnes (Head of Art), Roz Sharp (Second Deputy), together with Zoë Stojanovic (Associate Director, Aitchisons Estate Agents).
S
tewart Woodward commented, “We are pleased to have run the competition again this year and give our pupils the opportunity to inspire us with their art and photography skills.  The competition provides an excellent reason to look beyond the obvious and for the children to improve their knowledge and experiences of some wonderful buildings in the UK and abroad.  This year has been no exception, with entries that demonstrated a jaw dropping array of quality observations, unusual creations and special art pieces that I am sure the children will treasure for years to come.  Entries have shown very high levels of imagination and innovation, and all the children should be truly proud of their work.  Once again, we are most grateful to Aitchisons for running the competition with us.”
