Last term TGS’s Eco-Committee hosted its first-ever Wildlife Photography Competition. The competition invited children to enter an original photo of London wildlife for judging. Whether a fox, fish, bird, or beetle, any animal counted so long as they were not a pet!
The competition encouraged children to get outdoors and explore the many green spaces in London. Some popular places included Hampstead Heath, Regent’s Park, Primrose Hill, Highgate Wood, and Queen’s Wood.
After receiving over twenty entries, the members of the Eco-Committee then had the difficult task of choosing two winners. The committee decided on a Reception child who took an amusing photo of a squirrel, and a Form 6 child who took a black-and-white photo of a stag beetle. After the winning announcement, both children were then presented with a framed print of their entry.
We are so proud of the Eco-Committee for organising such a successful competition. With all the photographs taken right here in London, we are reminded of our responsibility to treat the city’s wildlife with respect.
The wonderful winning photos taken by TGS children can be viewed below. We have also shared a post about the TGS Wildlife Photography Competition on our Facebook page.
