"This is great because it shows that my imagination can become an amazing piece of art work.

"I put a lot of effort into creating this design and it looks like it has paid off.

"I am thankful of the teachers who supported me in art and showed me that I'm good enough no matter what."

Runner-up Morgan added: "I am very proud of being the runner up. Even though my design was not chosen, I worked hard on my design and it was worth it. I'm thankful to Sainsbury's for choosing my design as runner up."

Headteacher Liz Clarke said: "The competition attracted lots of entries and we are always happy to work with local businesses so that pupils get a real chance of working with the local community and understanding how important our community is.

"Sainsbury's has been very generous in the prizes of framed bags of their designs and the gift cards.
