Schools to discover history for South Hook LNG’s 2019 Calendar
South Hook LNG has launched its annual competition with local schools for the Company’s 2019 Calendar. This year, Pembrokeshire schools are being challenged to ‘Discover History’, to be depicted in a collage. Each of twelve winning Pembrokeshire schools will win £1,000 each.
Building on existing relationships with local schools and communities, South Hook LNG has chosen a competition theme that will maximise a shared sense of achievement by the children, generating opportunities for collective learning, as well as providing the winning schools with a useful financial boost to extracurricular activities.
Groups of schoolchildren are been encouraged to step back in time, illustrating scenes, events or a period in history, using scrap materials, paint or other more imaginative items, to form a collage. From medieval history, the Celts, and the Tudors, to the latest inventions in the twentieth century, the scope for choice is extensive.
Mariam Dalziel, PR Manager at South Hook LNG said, “History is a key subject in the National Curriculum and we hope that this challenge may inspire school class and team involvement, maximising the educational value of the competition.” Mariam continued, “To support the Calendar Competition, we have teamed up with NAWR, the Arts and Education Network for Mid and West Wales, who are offering free hands-on workshops with a professional artist, on collage techniques. We hope that teachers, PTAs and Friends Associations will be willing to get involved.”
Posters for the competition have been sent to Pembrokeshire schools and include details of the rules and entry requirements.
