Victoria Prentis visited Bure Park Primary School on Friday morning to thank personally the winner of her Christmas card design competition.

Victoria asked all primary schools in her constituency to submit designs for Christmas cards, working to the theme of angels. Victoria then chose Jasmine McDermott, year 2 at Bure Park Primary School, as the winning design.

Victoria arrived at the school on Lucerne Avenue and met with Mr Rob Pearson, who has recently announced his retirement. She also had the opportunity to speak with new Head Teacher, Yvonne Hewson. There was an opportunity to discuss fairer funding for schools.

Victoria visited Jasmine McDermott in her class and thanked her for her artwork. Jasmine and her family have been invited to the Houses of Parliament to meet Victoria there and have a tour.

Speaking after her visit, Victoria said, “It was lovely to speak with Jasmine and thank her for designing such a beautiful card. I look forward to meeting her and her family in Westminster soon.

There were many impressive designs submitted from schools across the constituency, and I hope to see more this year.”
