ST NICHOLAS HOUSE PUPIL, CALEB CONTINUES HIS WINNING WAYS!
Year 5 pupil, Caleb, has again been in winning form, this time winning the Farmers’ Union of Wales Christmas card competition. Caleb’s winning design featured a farmer driving a tractor across a field with milk and potatoes, as well as a Christmas tree on the trailer.
The competition was established with two main aims: to help raise funds for the British Heart Foundation Cymru and to increase the awareness of young children of the farming industry and their surrounding environment.
Caleb was presented with his prize, a cheque for £50 for St Nicholas House, at the Winter Fair at Builth Wells on Monday 28th November. Caleb can be seen above presenting Mrs Emma Taylor, Head of Christ College, with the cheque and her very own version of his card.
Caleb has recently won another competition he entered winning £200 for St Nicholas House. The pupils voted on how to spend the £200 Currys’ voucher and decided on a flat screen TV for their reception area and two smoothie makers. Well done Caleb
