All Primary Schools on St Helena have taken part in a Design a Stamp competition as part of their creative curriculum.  This involved designing a stamp to represent the Island of St Helena.

Primary Advisor Zoe Robinson commented:

“The standard of entries was very high and it was an extremely hard task for the judges to decide on the three top designs from each school – and then name an overall winner.”

Entries included stamps with images of the Wirebird, the RMS St Helena, the Heart-shaped Waterfall, Rupert’s, Prosperous Bay Plain and other scenic areas of the Island.

The following winners in each primary school have been presented with prizes and are warmly congratulated:
