The theme was Reflections, and it saw youngsters drawing on all sorts of inspiration to produce a high standard of entries.

Children at Ayton Primary were inspired by the outdoor and symmetrical artwork by Andy Goldsworthy.

And they created some beautiful designs, using natural materials.

The Rotary Club was very impressed by the standard of all the entries submitted to the competition.

Two pupils won first and second place in the seven to 11 years category.

First place went to the creative Ebonii Gullon, who was presented with a £30 Amazon voucher, while in second place was Lucy McKirdy, who won a £15 voucher.

All participants received a certificate and the winners’ prizes were kindly donated by the Rotary Club. They were presented at a school assembly.

Both of these entries were entered into the district competition, which was also held in Eyemouth High School, last month.
