Going beyond our best

  • Durrington High School has made me work harder than what I thought was possible, making me proud of the results I have achieved.

Heidi Sheridan wins regional Eco Poem Poster Challenge

There has been more success from Durrington students in the area of climate change as Heidi Sheridan has recently been announced as the joint winner of the 11-13 years category for the Eco Poem Poster challenge, which is kindly sponsored by Southern Co-op who jointly run it with The E.Y.E project (of which Durrington are proud to be a part of).

The panel from The E.Y.E Project were overwhelmed with the quantity and quality of the work received from pupils around West Sussex.  The panel shortlisted 22 posters and these were passed to the Southern Co-op judging team to select the winners and runners up.

Southern Co-op advised that judging was a tough job! They were so impressed with the thinking, energy and creativity that went into the posters.  So impressed were they, they are planning to display the posters in their office. They were grateful to all the schools that took part.

Speaking about Heidi’s winning entry, Southern Co-op said they loved the concept behind her vision as it was a very different approach to the brief.  The message they felt was particularly compelling. Her poster can be viewed here

As a winner Heidi will receive a book token and her design will be used in a poster campaign meaning it will be distributed to schools and communities later this term. The three schools of the winning posters will all receive litter picking equipment.

Congratulations Heidi!
