SCOTTISH CITYLINK COMPETITION WINNERS UNVEIL THEIR DRAWING ON COACH IN GLASGOW

 

Primary school children in Glasgow who were asked to draw a picture of what their city meant to them, saw their artwork unveiled on the side of a Scottish Citylink coach last week.

Ashpark Primary School in the south west of the city entered the company’s competition in November to draw a picture titled ‘My City’. The winning entry was drawn by all members of class Primary 4M who are seven and eight years old.

The winning design, made up of many of Glasgow’s famous landmarks including the Armadillo, the town hall, a football and the River Clyde is now displayed on the rear of a Scottish Citylink vehicle operating the 900 service which offers journeys between Glasgow and Edinburgh up to 50 times a day.

The winners were also invited on a special trip to Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh, travelling on their specially designed bus.

The ‘My city’ bus design competition was open to primary school children in Glasgow and Edinburgh, aged 5-11. Pupils were asked to draw a picture that explained what their city meant to them. A winner was chosen from each city with the image placed on the rear of a coach travelling from their local city.

Marketing Manager for Scottish Citylink, Nicola Campbell said: “We were overwhelmed by the number and quality of entries that we received. The children have obviously put a lot of time and effort into their drawings. It’s great to see all of the wonderful images that were prompted by the great city of Glasgow.”

Graham Matuszak, Primary 4M teacher said: "Winning the Citylink ‘My City’ competition has been a fantastic experience for the children of P4M at Ashpark Primary School. As a class we submitted our entry more in hope rather than expectation however the collective effort of the children paid off. As a number of children in the class stated upon finding out that their design had been selected – ‘teamwork makes the dream work’. The look upon the children’s faces when the bus featuring their design arrived outside the school is something that I will remember for a very long time.

“Equally, the opportunity to visit Edinburgh and Dynamic Earth in their very own personalised Citylink 900 bus is something that I am confident the children will never forget. I am immensely proud of the children of P4M and I know that everyone in the Ashpark Primary School community has shared in their sense of achievement and pride. As a class and school we would very much like to thank Citylink for their generosity – it is rare that children are provided with such valuable and rich learning experiences.”
