Wildlife photography competition - Hurstpierpoint College

Wildlife photography competition

The Biology Department launched its first Wildlife Photography Competition during February with the winners being announced to coincide with World Wildlife Day on the 3rd March.

With many people taking walks as exercise due to lockdown restrictions, this provided the perfect platform for the competition. The aim was to encourage staff, pupils and their families to go outside for fresh air to combat the increased screen time.

There were some truly amazing entries with a huge variety of wildlife which had been spotted out and about in the countryside.

Prize winners:

Reception-Year 4: 1st Jake M, 2nd Elsie H, runner-up Georgina G
Year 5 and Year 6: 1st Joshua G, 2nd Amanda B, runner-up Sophie B
Year 7 and year 8: 1st Bea K, 2nd Grace J, runner up Issy R
Shell, Remove, Fifth: 1st Jacob O, 2nd Jessica B, runner-up Esme D
Sixth Form: 1st Santiago R G, 2nd Michael M, runner-up Michael M
Staff and Parents: 1st Carina J (parent), 2nd Nicole B (parent), runners-up Kat H and Matthew R (both staff)

Thank you to everyone who submitted entries, they will be on display in the Biology Department. We hope this will become an annual competition and plan to collate the winning photographs into a calendar with the proceeds going to charity Georgina Black, Teacher of Biology
