Young artists work on public display

A HENLEY schoolboy is going to have his artwork put on public display

A HENLEY schoolboy is going to have his artwork put on public display.

Oscar Scannell, six, who attends St Mary?s School in St Andrew?s Road, was one of 12 winners in a children?s competition run by Oxford University Press for a drawing of what they might see if they could look through a window on another world. There were more 2,000 entries, which were judged by a panel that included children?s illustrator and author Korky Paul.

Entries were judged for the most imaginative, bright and exciting visions of other worlds. Oscar?s picture will be exhibited with the other winning entries in a large-scale public display in Walton Street, Oxford.


Meanwhile, a girl from Chalkhouse Green has won a competition to design the mascot for the lacrosse world cup in England in 2017. Hannah Townend, 13, who is a pupil at Queen Anne?s School in Caversham, will be able to walk out with Team England in front of a home crowd during the tournament.

Hannah, whose design features a lion in the England lacrosse kit, said: ?I can?t wait to see my design come to life and I am looking forward to attending the World Cup. I would love to see England win.?
