MALAWI PARTNERSHIP – LOGO DESIGN COMPETITION

A reminder that the logo design competition for our partnership with Namadzi Secondary School in Malawi is open to all pupils in the school. We would like you to come up with a design based on the old Scots idea of the “Common Weal” – a term that denotes friendship and compassion with others. Your logo should be recognisably “Scottish”, but you can use any material to design it. Our partners in Malawi are currently doing the same and we hope to combine the winning designs from the two schools to make a single image.  Please hand any designs to Mrs Andrew (Room 12) or Mr Murphy (Music) by Wednesday 20 December.
