Congratulations to St Peter’s School! The pupils of St Peter’s submitted the winning entry for the annual Aberdeen Biodiversity Centre Schools poster competition 2017 ‘Save our Seas’. The judges noted that this year the competition stood out for the number of excellent entries they received. Judges remarked it was a very difficult task to decide on a winner in each category, but in the end, the winning entry for the primary school category was St Peter’s School. It is a wonderful achievement and reflective of all the hard work the pupils put into the competition. St Peters will receive a pack of resources for encouraging wildlife in their school grounds and will hold the prestigious Primary School shield for the upcoming year, and Aboyne Academy will receive a camera trap, to monitor the wildlife that is in their surrounding school grounds, and will also hold the prestigious Secondary School shield for the upcoming year.
Hats off are also due to all the other participating schools. Each pupil will receive a certificate celebrating their hard work and creative flair. Professor David Lusseau, Marine Biology Researcher, remarked:
“The choice was very difficult, I had many favourites but, after much deliberation, we finally settled on the winners for their wow factors and how well they grab attention and gave a clear message: anyone can help look better our seas!”
It is inspiring to see how much talent and creative energy we have amongst our children and young people. Once again, a huge well done to St Peter’s School and all the other schools that took part.
