A BRIDLINGTON youngster had a special surprise at her last assembly at Kingsmill School in Driffield.

Megan Amery, 16, of Marton Road, was presented with a certificate for finishing in second place in the Driffield Show art contest - a contest she didn’t realise she had entered.

At the assembly, Kingsmill headteacher Miss Young ran through Megan’s achievements as a pupil at the school, before producing the extra certificate - a Second Prize from the Driffield Show.

Unbeknown to her, a piece of Megan’s GSCE Art Work had been entered into the show’s art competition by Driffield School, who were responsible for the GSCE Art course running at Kingsmill.

The work a traditional African Mask protected by branches, as the centre piece of a wooden plaque.

Megan’s mum and grandparents were present to witness her suprise and delight on receiving the certificate, while her artwork was displayed to both pupils and staff.

David Hollingworth, Megan’s granddad, said: “A big well done to Megan, and good wishes for your new ‘school’ life at the Bridlington site of the East Riding College.”
