The School Council meet the Lord Mayor
From the Minster FM Website 12.07.16:
The Lord Mayor welcomed pupils from Osbaldwick Primary School to the Guildhall this afternoon to congratulate them on finishing runner up in a national design competition.
The designs, which are now on display at the side of the Mansion House, saw all the students involved draw their interpretation of the Mansion House, images of the Lord Mayor, civic crest and their school name as work to restore the Mansion House continues. The designs were submitted in the 2016 Ivor Goodsite hoarding competition.
Before designing the hoardings the pupils were taken on an exclusive hard hat tour of the Mansion House of the building for inspiration and to learn more about construction processes and civic history.
The Lord Mayor met with the pupils and Charles Anelay from the Mansion House contractors William Anelay Ltd, to congratulate them on their work and present them with a certificate and a medal.
The Rt Hon The Lord Mayor of York, Cllr Dave Taylor said:
“Congratulations to all those involved at Osbaldwick Primary School. Their colourful designs are a welcome addition to some of the hoardings around the Mansion House. This is a very worthwhile initiative in which the pupils have not only shown their creativity but also learned about the construction industry. I look forward to meeting the pupils and awarding them their well deserved prizes for the work they have done.”
