On Tuesday, the presentation of prizes for the Heritage Design Challenge took place at the Maidstone Museum. Sir Robert, who lives in Allington Castle, awarded the certificates.
It was a wonderful occasion to celebrate the brilliance of our Year 6 designers who entered and offered the opportunity for the children to view the other amazing designs and the varied, fantastic products. James C, Matilda C, Olivia Q and Esme S created elegant Egyptian-inspired nested dolls and Ishaan P, Samuel P, Jude R and Jai S’s Roman pencil sharpener ensured that they too were finalists.
Sienna’s product, her Japanese lantern, was a worthy winner and was chosen to be sold in the Maidstone Museum gift shop from July. The Heritage Design Challenge exhibition is well worth a visit and runs until mid-July, at the Maidstone Museum.
