Schools Poster Competition

All the entries for our School Poster Competition can now be seen in the Douglas Village Shopping Centre. Fantastic work by the 250 pupils that took part!

We got great help putting all those posters up. Big thanks to Adam, Evan, and Barry from Douglas Community School as well as Dubheasa and Allan. And, the assistance of Bartosz and his colleagues from the shopping centre was fantastic!

Here are the winners of the competition chosen by our judges Mary, Evelyn and Yvonne:
