Styal Primary and Dean Oaks triumph at Wilmslow Show

Pupils across Wilmslow and the surrounding area, took part in the annual school's competitions at the Wilmslow Show on Sunday, 13th July, where Styal Primary School and Dean Oaks Primary were named the winners.

There were four categories in the Horticultural Competitions to enter; cookery, handicraft, natural history and painting, where children can enter independently of their school for personal cash prizes. Each of their winning entries is collated as points towards The Altrincham Shield.

The Shield, which was won by Styal Primary School, is awarded to the school whose pupils gain the most points across the four categories.

The Macclesfield Arts Cup is awarded to the school with the best overall display, which is made up of work collated during the year and put together by a teacher from the school especially for show.

Ms Wright, the Arts Coordinator from Dean Oaks Primary, displayed work from all year groups, spread across two tables, which the judges deemed to be the best because of the choice of different media used, fabric, clay, papyrus and natural materials amongst others.

Mrs Caroline Dumville, mum of the sisters who collected the Altrincham Shield, said "Apparently, the shield spent half a day in each of the girl's classrooms and is now on display in the main reception area."
