Three weeks ago, in association with partners Laurie Ross, we asked primary pupils, from our local community, to design a Christmas Card. The theme was “Christmas in the Southside” and we asked pupils to demonstrate how they imagine the festive season would look in the Southside.
We’ve has a phenomenal response with over 1100 entries from schools all over the south side and were very impressed with the creativity and efforts show by the schools.
Queen’s Park’s Head of Commercial Kieran Koszary and Wendy Agnew from Laurie Ross presented Macy,who is in Primary 6b at St Fillian’s Primary, with her prize today outside the Mount Florida branch of Laurie Ross.
Queen’s Park and Laurie Ross are also going to supply book vouchers to all the schools who entered to thank them for their had work.
June Lynch, Managing Director, Laurie Ross said: “Congratulations Macy! We are blown away by just how talented our Southside schoolkids are. The response to the competition was fantastic and it was incredibly difficult picking just one winner from the hundreds of amazing entries. Thank you to everyone who entered and for making our Laurie Ross Branch windows so colourful and Christmassy this December. The Laurie Ross team wish you and yours a lovely Christmas and a healthy and happy 2022.”
Bridie Gibb, Principal Teacher, St. Fillan’s Primary School said: “All stages of our school were excited about entering the Christmas Card Competition ran by Laurie Ross and Queen’s Park Football Club. We can only imagine how difficult it was to choose a winner as the hundreds of entries displayed in Laurie Ross’ Mount Florida office were really impressive. There are clearly a lot of talented young artists in our local area! Macy was delighted to hear she won the competition. Grateful thanks to the organisers for making one of our P6 pupils very happy!”
Kieran Koszary, Head of Commercial at Queen’s Park, said: “Congratulations to Macy for her wonderful design and a massive thank you to all those who entered the competition. The response has been outstanding and I would like to thank all the pupils and teachers for their efforts and we wish them all a Merry Christmas. We look forward to continuing our work with the local schools over the years ahead as we look to grow the Queens Park Family.”
