Congratulations to our winners!

What a pleasure it was to see so many entries this year for our Prescare Art and Writing Competition.   While there was clearly a lot of time spent on the presentation of the entries, it was impressive to see how much many entrants considered and applied the theme in the comments attached to their work.  We are grateful to our judges, Mrs. Judith Dobson, deputy principal at Saint Kentigern Girls’ School and Mr. Rod Watts, chief executive of Presbyterian Support Northern.  They were presented with a very difficult task and put a lot of energy and thought into their judging.
