The Education Marquee at the Royal County of Berkshire Show 2013
Over the past few years, schools have exhibited students' work in the Education Marquee at The Royal County of Berkshire Show and 2013 again saw an impressive number of schools displaying their students' work of a very high standard, making for a vibrant and colourful exhibition. A record number of schools entered the School Exhibitors Challenge around the theme of "Outside the Classroom" and the judges, Zoe Benyon President-elect of NDAS, Rhona Tucker, Vice Chair of NDAS and Pam Hillier-Brook, Chair of NDAS Education Committee found it challenging making a decision. First prize was awarded to Cold Ash St. Marks Primary School, second prize went to Beedon Primary School, third prize was awarded to Acres of Fun Nursery and fourth to Compton Primary. Invitations to exhibit or compete in next year's Show, on September 20th and 21st 2014 are sent out to schools at the beginning of the summer term.
“Grow Your Own Competition” for Schools
The entries for the School competition for a plant in an unusual container at the County Show were delightful with some very original objects made use of. Details of school competitions for 2014 can be obtained by contacting the Education Officer at the Society office.
