Kingsley Pupil wins Parliament Competition
Artwork by a pupil at The Kingsley Prep School in Royal Leamington Spa has won a competition organised as part of the launch of a prestigious book to mark the 750th anniversary of Parliament.
The colourful painting and collage was selected from entries from 17 schools which were displayed in the Cloisters of Westminster Abbey for the official unveiling of the publication The Story of Parliament: Celebrating 750 years of parliament in Britain.
Year 6 pupil Isabella Larucci (10) attended the event with Kingsley’s Head teacher, Ms Heather Owens; Head of Prep, Miss Anne Hornsby and Head Girl, Helen Freer as her prize for creating the school’s best Parliament picture.
“She was thrilled to be at the launch so to then be announced as one of the overall winners was the icing on the cake for her – and the whole Kingsley School community,” says Head teacher Ms Owens.
Girls-only day school, Kingsley is an editorial contributor to The Story of Parliament: Celebrating 750 years of parliament in Britain which has been produced by The History of Parliament Trust in partnership with publisher St James’s House.
Lord Cormack, the Chairman of the History of Parliament Trust and Richard Freed, Director of St James’s House, selected the three competition winners who have each won an Apple Mac computer for their school.
Isabella was also presented with a copy of The Story of Parliament: Celebrating 750 years of parliament in Britain.
