Winning primary school student’s work featured in national charity book

Winning students whose work was chosen for inclusion in the 30th Anniversary Book “Once Upon A Farm” have been presented with personal copies. The school also received a copy of the book to be featured in their school library.  The competition was open to schools from across England and Wales that had attended a Countryside Learning Day in the summer term of 2016.

Sandra McNeill, Finance Manager and book creator said: “We were astounded by the number of fantastic entries submitted for the competition, choosing the winning entries was incredibly difficult. The book was designed to provide schools with follow up work after attending a Countryside Learning Schools Day, enabling children from any age range and ability level to produce a unique piece of work to be published. Many thanks must go to our supporters for their financial and skills help in the production of this book.”

Gary Richardson, Chief Executive of Countryside Learning said:  “Our job is a very special one, we get to visit the most wonderful parts of the country and meet some amazing people, none more so than the children who benefit hugely from experiencing life outside the classroom and not connected to an electronic device.

We have always known just how much the children benefit from the days, but I was still amazed at the skill, creativity and knowledge that they put into the work which goes into making this amazing book.

This amazing collection of stories, art and literature is a great way to celebrate our 30 years as a charity and the impact we have on children up and down the country.”
