A nine-year-old girl was delighted to be crowned the winner of a poster design competition, with her artwork now proudly hanging outside a station.
Pupils from R J Mitchell Primary School, Benhurst Primary School, Elm Park Primary School, and Saint Alban’s Catholic Primary School, Ullswater Way, Elm Park, were invited to create colourful posters to brighten up the area. The poster designed by Saint Alban’s Catholic Primary School pupil Jessie Harvey, of Rainham, was chosen by the art department to represent the school outside Elm Park station.
Jessie says that she is “very happy and proud” that she won.
Mayor of Havering Councillor Linda Van den Hende unveiled pupils’ posters to the community.
Mum Clare said: “I’m extremely proud of her as she absolutely loves art and is very passionate about it, so winning meant a lot to all of us.”
