The parent council at Williamsburgh Primary School has received a two hundred pounds cash boost after one of the school’s pupils won the Paisley First Mascot Competition.
Christopher McCall won the competition, chosen from hundreds of entries, with his colourful design…Paisley Lion!
As well as being able to see his mascot design brought to life, Christopher received a £25.00 prize and now as the winning school, Williamsburgh Primary School Parent Council has received a cheque for £200.00.
Paisley First Chairman Ian Henderson said:” It’s important to involve the children in all the positive projects we are working on to bring more people to the town centre.”
“It’s great that the parent council at Williamsburgh Primary School is able to benefit from the success of the school’s talented pupils.”
“We are all excited for next month when we will be welcoming Christopher’s winning design, Paisley Lion, to Paisley town centre.”
Head teacher Nova Scott said: “The children really enjoyed taking part in the mascot competition and we are so proud of Christopher and his winning design.”
“I am sure our fantastic parent council will have no shortage of ideas on how to spend the prize of £200, it is most welcome.”
