St John’s Primary School pupils take part in McGinley’s annual Christmas Card Challenge

Christmas is just a couple of weeks away, and pupils at St John’s C of E Primary School in Watford have been getting into the festive spirit by taking part in McGinley’s Christmas Card Challenge 2018. 

Following the success of last year’s challenge, this year saw the pupils of St John’s enthusiastic towards the challenge, with a fabulous array of designs being created by the children. 

Head teacher Helen Langeveld told us how delighted the pupils were to be involved: “St John’s C of E Primary School are really delighted to work with McGinley to provide their 2018 Christmas card design. Our children have enjoyed getting into the Christmas spirit early and will be so proud to have the school name being linked out in the local community.” 

So, without further ado, the Christmas card chosen was a bright and colourful Christmas tree created by Tara (aged 4) from Genesis Class at St John’s.

Tara will receive a £50 voucher for the school library, as well as a batch of cards to share with her friends and family this Christmas. Tara’s card will be sent to all McGinley workers, staff and clients, but electronically, as part of the McGinley PROTECT programme that looks to minimise our effect on the environment. 

The day also saw McGinley give presentation about transport to the children, as well as play some building games out of spaghetti and marshmallows before we announced which pupil had been chosen to represent the school. 

The inspiration behind the challenge has been to encourage the next generation into roles associated with infrastructure, through focusing on STEM and ‘developing the brightest minds of tomorrow’. 

A big well done to all the pupils at St John’s that took part – we look forward to seeing you all again next year for another Christmas Card Challenge!
