ARTISTIC pupils throughout Kirklees have created posters designed for family support charity Home- Start Kirklees.
Newsome Junior school Year 5 pupil Alendrine Reid painted the winning design on the theme of Family Life.
She painted a beach scene.
Local sculptor and artist Mick Kirkby-Geddes judged the competition at the North Light Gallery in Armitage Bridge. "Alendrine's design was a winner because it was fun and seemed to sum up family life," he said.
Alendrine received £250 for her school.
