Every year Highlands School Art Department runs a Christmas Card Competition. The winning design is professionally printed and used as the official Highlands School Christmas Card.

The 30 shorted listed students were:
Bailey Yellop, Jacob Rawding, Ivor Golden, Armantas Mankevicius, Zack Larkou, Georgio Chrysostomou, Ava Brodie, Ethan Blayne, Marco Sanjurjo Pfitzmann, Georgia Haines, Grace Kent, Hazel Cavus, Eleni Petinou, Milla Morris, Finn Gavin-Plume, Oliwia Bugno, Selin Kaya, Owen Jones, Kieran Sweetapple, Joshua Elphick-Simpson, Megan Davies, Maya Zmajkovic, George Athanasiou, Eliz Djafer, Hazel Reeves-Moore, Nicholas Papanicolaou and Ellie Davies.
The overall winner of the competition was Megan Bicknell with this fantastic effort! (see picture).
2nd place – Georgina Zacharia
3rd place – Francesca Merrick
The Art department would like to thank ALL the year 7 students who entered the competition – the standard was extremely high this year!

Students can collect their designs from the art department during morning break or lunch. The tray will be placed outside the art office.
