Moorhead primary school

Moorhead Primary School, Derby

16th December 2005

The Norwest Holst team at the Merrill College site in Derby teamed up with the adjacent Moorhead Primary School, to hold a poster competition centred on Ivor Goodsite.

According to the Head teacher of Moorhead Primary School, Ivor proved very popular:

“The children were inspired by the visit of Ivor Goodsite and by photographs of him at work to design a poster of him. They thoroughly enjoyed the challenge and the posters produced are brilliant!”

The competition prizes were presented in a specially arranged assembly held at the school, and attended by local press and a Scheme Monitor.

The winning poster in each year will have the honour of being displayed on the hoarding at the Merrill College site.
