Mortimer Primary School
Excellence for all
Emmaus – 05/12/22
Dear parents/carers,
During the month of October, Year 6 took part in a Big Draw event in partnership with a local charity, Emmaus North East.  The charity is dedicated to helping those in need who are homeless and asked our Year 6 pupils to put their drawing skills to the test by drawing designs based upon North East landmarks.  The children’s work was then sent off and judged; winning entries are to be included in Emmaus’ 2023 calendar.  Many of the children’s designs depicted homeless individuals or highlighted the issue in other ways.  We invited Year 6 parents and guardians along to spend the afternoon drawing alongside the children and I think you will agree that we have some extremely talented parents at Mortimer! 

Last week, representatives from Emmaus came to Mortimer to talk about how they help people in our local community and held a question and answer session about homelessness with our Year 6 pupils.  We were also lucky enough to be introduced to their new therapy puppy, Loki. They announced the names of the 12 winning artists whose work will be included in their 2023 calendar and were kind enough to give prizes to every child who took part.  Thank you so much, Emmaus! 

The 12 winning entries belonged to: 

  • Amy Adams 
  • William Amor 
  • Will Consadine 
  • William Davies
  • Lily Eddon
  • Harry Evans
  • Ryan Jahanfar
  • Isabel Langston
  • Anna Maughan
  • Alice Turner
  • Finley Winfield
  • Eve-Casey Wynne

Well done to all of you and we cannot wait to see your entries on the 2023 calendar! As soon as they go on sale, we will let you know in case you want to purchase one and help support a fantastic local charity.
