YOUNG designers put their creativity to the test to come up with winning designs for centenary school flags.

Both Burlington infants and junior schools each held individual competitions for pupils to come up with a design as the final part of the joint school’s 100th anniversary which was in 2010.

Last week, after some serious judging by Lords Feoffees representatives, the winners and runners up were announced.

Thanks to the Feoffees the winning designs will be turned into the real thing by a bespoke flag manufacturer and take pride of place on a donated centenary flagpole in what the schools hope will be a new centenary garden between their two sites.

The area will be developed using centenary message bricks ordered by past pupils and others.

Last Friday the winners and runners up in the flag contest were presented with book tokens, certificates, book marks and rulers from Feoffee Brian Rogers.

Junior winner was Lottie Grey, 10 with second place going to Danielle Moate, 11 and third, Jessica Webber, 10. Infant winner was Lacy Mae KcKirdy, 7, followed by Kasim Chaudry, 6, and Charlie Mc Cloud, 7.
