Glebelands Year 8 students have recently entered a Lions Club International competition. The competition has been organised by Lions Clubs throughout the world to commemorate the fact that the Lions helped the United Nations Organisation draft the charter for UNICEF.
The competition was to design a poster that communicated the theme “Children Know Peace”. The winning school entry was then put forward to the South East District competition for school winners from Kent, Sussex and Surrey.
The South East District winner will then go forward to a National competition, and finally the National winner will qualify for a world wide competition with the overall winner visiting the UN Headquarters in New York on International UN Day.
Mr Brian Walpole, President of the Cranleigh & District Lions Club said “The members of the Cranleigh & District Lions Club are very pleased that pupils from Glebelands have entered our competition for many years, thanks to the encouragement of their Head of Art, Mr Malcolm Turley. So as well as donating cash prizes to the first three places from the Glebelands entrants, we are also pleased to donate £50 for use by the school art department.”
