KING’S Ely Junior pupil, Lawrence Boness, is a winner in the UK Polar Network Antarctica Flag Design Competition!

Schoolchildren from across the globe were invited to design flags as part of the annual Antarctica Day celebrations, which mark the fact the Antarctica Treaty was signed on December 1st, 1959.

Mr Parkinson, Head of Geography at King’s Ely Junior, encouraged pupils to enter the competition and Lawrence’s design, pictured here at Hope Point on the island of South Georgia, was chosen as a winner.

A spokesperson for the competition said: “The aim of this initiative is to inspire new generations about the Antarctic and Antarctica Day. The idea is that following a lesson(s) on Antarctica, students design a flag for the Antarctic – as it does not have its own – based on what they have learnt.”

Well done Lawrence – how fantastic to see your design here at Hope Point!
