Winners Photograph and Press Release

Class 4 – Winners of Burton Bradstock Primary School 2012 inter-class photo competition sponsored by Burton Bradstock ONLINE. Jasmine Parsons holds the Winner’s Shield for Class 4 and Emilie Rice the Camera prize . Eleanor (whose photograph was chosen as best overall entry) holds the second Camera presented to the School.  These were presented by Mr. Patrick Coughlin.

The annual Burton Bradstock Primary School inter-class photo competition, sponsored by Burton Bradstock ONLINE, took place during the Summer Term 2012 for the sixth year running.  All Classes entered photographs linked to the topic ‘Our Environment Tells a Story’.  This year the Winner’s Shield went to Class 4 and they accepted, on behalf of the School, a Nikon Coolpix Digital Camera.  Another Nikon camera was accepted on behalf of the School by pupil Eleanor Cox who submitted the best individual entry. 

The entries were judged by Patrick Coughlin, a professional photographer from London, who said “All the entries were of an excellent standard but there had to be a winner and that was Class 4.” He said he “was particularly impressed with Eleanor Cox’s (Class 3) entry and she was a worthy winner of the individual prize”.  All the photographs entered for judging will be posted on the Burton Bradstock ONLINE web site (www.burtonbradstock.org.uk).

Headteacher, Mrs. Claire Staple, thanked David Edwards, a member of the ONLINE Committee, for once again organising a School Photographic Competition and thanked the Committee for its generosity in giving the School two more digital cameras for use by all the pupils. “The children have enjoyed taking the photographs and as a school we were very pleased to take part once again in this community-related activity.  The standard of photographs improves each year as does the children’s enthusiasm to participate.  The pupils were a particularly attentive audience when Mr. Coughlin talked about and displayed some of the work he has been commissioned to do.  Some of his advertising photographs are very well known.”
