A Dunoon Primary School pupil has won and Argyll and Bute-wide competition that saw her creation come to life yesterday, Thursday, May 4.
Primary 7 pupil Roxana Dulska came out head and shoulders above the rest of what the local authority had to offer after winning Argyll and Bute Council’s flag design competition to commemorate the Coronation of King Charles III.
And she saw her creation come to life at Kilmory Castle in a special ceremony earlier this week after being crowned the winner of the competition that saw entries from over 1,100 entries.
Roxana had initially been shortlisted as the regional winner in the Bute and Cowal area before going head to head with regional winners from Helensburgh and Lomond, Kintyre and the Islands and Oban, Lorn and the Isles before she picked up her crown.
The Council’s Policy Lead for Education, Councillor Yvonne McNeilly was keen to thank those who entered and congratulated Roxana on her achievement.
She said: “Huge congratulations to Roxana on winning this very special competition and also to Leah, Harry and Amelia on becoming the regional winners in their local areas.
“We received more than 1,100 entries from across Argyll and Bute and they were all tremendous.
“Choosing the winners was a very difficult job because there were so very many wonderful designs. Everyone who entered should be very proud of themselves for helping Argyll and Bute to mark the Coronation of King Charles III – you are all incredible.
“Thanks also to all the teachers for supporting our young people to take part in the competition and for encouraging their creativity to shine.”
