Student wins Christmas competition judged by Weston MP

Priory SchoolA student at Priory Community School is dreaming of a career as an artist after creating the winning design in a Christmas card art competition – her third success in Christmas card competitions in recent years.

Kayleigh Phillips, aged 14, beat off 750 primary and secondary school students across Weston and Worle to win a Christmas Card competition judged by local MP John Penrose.

In the latest competition she won a competition to visit the House of Commons.

It is the third competition to design a Christmas card that she has won in recent years.

She said: “I love art and I am drawing regularly at home, anything from animals to landscapes.

“I would love to become a famous artist or a graphic designer. In school I’m doing Computer Aided Design and learning these skills. I was so excited to discover I had won the competition.”

John Penrose offered schoolchildren the chance to showcase their talents by crafting a festive card for him to send to contacts.

This year’s cards were designed around the theme of Weston’s ‘super’ new seafront.
