A pupil from Hackbridge Primary School has been recognised by national housebuilder, Barratt London, as the winner of its recent art competition. Riley (Year 6) designed the cover of a New Homes Card, which will now be printed and delivered to all new homeowners at the nearby New Mill Quarter development, where 42 homes are now occupied on Hackbridge Road. The winning design depicted a family home and a set of new keys, featuring the message ‘May love and happiness fill your home’.
Riley, Rachel (Year 3) and Larena (Year 6), all pupils at Hackbridge Primary, came first, second and third place respectively, winning a range of Amazon vouchers, which were proudly awarded to them in a recent assembly by Nadia Yousif, Sales Manager at Barratt London.
Pam Reardon, Sales and Marketing Director for Barratt East London, comments: “We are delighted to showcase Riley’s wonderful artwork on our cards. We are always looking for opportunities to engage with the communities surrounding our developments, and we believe involving local schoolchildren in the design of our New Homes Cards will also help new homeowners to feel welcomed by the local community. Riley, Rachel and Larena, should be very proud of their submissions to the competition, as should all the other children who entered. Who knows – we might be looking at the drawings of the next Picasso!”
Emma Walford, Headteacher at Hackbridge Primary School, adds: “It’s very exciting to see the hard work of our pupils celebrated by Barratt London, and I would like to thank the housebuilder for providing the children with such a unique opportunity. Primary school pupils have such a flair for creativity and we hope the artwork makes the card recipients very happy and that they enjoy their new homes.”
