At the end of term, the Bolton School Junior Girls’ Photography Competition winners were finally announced.

This year’s theme, set by old boy and professional photographer, Mark Power, who also judged the competition, was ‘My Favourite View’ and the girls came up with an array of creative and beautiful photographs in response. Fifty titled images were submitted overall and the standard in all age groups was very high.

 All of the photographs were put on display in the reception area of the Junior Girls’ School for pupils, parents and visitors to admire.

The results were announced in the end of year assembly. The year group winners were Biela Sastre-Done in Year 3, Lily-Grace Greer in Year 4, Molly Grimshaw in Year 5 and Alexia Hughes in Year 6. The overall winner was Year 3 pupil Emily Fox, who entered an emotional photograph of the tributes left in St Ann’s Square for the Manchester Arena bombing victims. All five girls received a printed canvas of their winning photograph.
