Proving 'PoPP'ular

Following a recent competition run by Mrs Brookes and Parents of Prior Prep (PoPP) to create a design for some new mugs, the finished product has now been revealed - and greatfully welcomed by tea and coffee lovers throughout the parent body!

Mrs Brookes ran the competition throughout the school at the end of last year. A panel of judges assessed the artwork and whittled the designs down to a top three selection which was then reduced to a single winning design; by T Slade in Year 5 (Year 4 at time of design).

T Slade was delighted that his artwork had been chosen to decorate the mugs - which will be used at match teas, PoPP coffee mornings and other suitable events - and he was presented with his own one to keep in a whole school assembly.

Parents will also have their chance to get their hands on a mug as they are up for sale in the school shop for £5 each.

We are thrilled with the mug and have had only positive comments from parents using them at match teas and PoPP coffee mornings, where the design has been much admired
