EARLIER this year, after the terrible fire that partially destroyed the Notre-Dame, Michel Aupetit, Archbishop of Paris, asked children across the globe to draw the world-famous Cathedral as they know it or imagine it.
Lorraine Oldham, Key Stage 2 MFL Coordinator at King’s Ely Junior, launched a campaign in school and, as a result, sent off more than 60 fantastic entries for the competition in March.
More than 6,000 drawings completed by young people aged 4-16 from across the world were received and we are delighted that Year 6 King’s Ely Junior pupil, Abigail Pierson, has had her drawing chosen as one of the “top 50”!
As you can see, Abigail’s beautiful drawing has been printed and displayed on the tarpaulins around the restoration site of the Cathedral.
Congratulations to Abigail and well done to everyone who entered the competition!
