Talented youngsters from Denbighshire have been honoured for their creative talents in a competition arranged by Denbighshire County Council to mark St David’s Day. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Infant school pupils were asked to design an A4 painting or drawing that would be transformed into a specially created flag to commemorate St David’s Day. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The winning pupils were Gwen Jones from Ysgol Bro Dyfrdwy, Cynwyd and Eddie Cooper from Ysgol Plas Brondyffryn, Denbigh. Their flags have been flying at County Hall, Ruthin this week. Once lowered, the flags will be presented to them as a memento of their winning design. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Junior school pupils were invited to write a poem about St David’s Day. The winners were Erin Roberts of Ysgol y Castell, Rhuddlan; Lucke Jones of Ysgol Tir Morfa, Rhyl and Ynyr Davies of Ysgol Pant Pastynog. They were presented with a framed copy of their winning entry. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Councillor Gwyneth Kensler, Chairman of Denbighshire, said: “We were delighted to arrange a competition again this year to mark St David’s Day. The response from our schools was phenomenal and we were delighted with the quality of creative entries we received. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

“It is important for the Council to mark St David’s Day and what better way than to reward pupils for using their imagination to commemorate this important day”. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
