Budding photographers snap up the rewards

Budding photographers at a Stafford high school have had their photos published in a housing association’s annual report.

Ten pupils from Wolgarston High School, at Cannock Road, entered a photography competition run by South Staffordshire Housing Association (SSHA) looking for local talent to feature in its annual report to residents.

All 10 pupils had their photos published in the report, which is distributed to more than 5,950 residents. To reward them for their hard work and talent they were presented with shopping vouchers by the housing association.

Aimee Parker, a year 13 student, wowed the housing association with her picture of an autumn tree which was selected for the front page.

Kevin Brown, assistant head of faculty for design at Wolgarston School, said: “The students were excited to get involved in the project as they are all very passionate about photography. They were delighted to see their photos printed in the annual report.

“It is great that their enthusiasm and hard work has been rewarded and we are looking forward to working with SSHA on future projects.”

Jan Goode, director of customer services at Housing Plus Group said: “Our annual report is important, as it shows where we are doing well and where we can do better. Sometimes these types of reports can be a bit dull and rather dry, so we thought a calendar would be more interesting and useful for residents to use. We really appreciate the artistic help from the students at Wolgarston.

“We hope that with everyone’s support we have produced a report and calendar that shows off young talent, and is useful and informative too. Thank you, and well done to those involved it’s something to be really proud of.”

The ten successful candidates from Wolgarston High School were Aimee Parker, Tom Eaton, Sarah Clarke, Holly Haynes, Alice Evans, Anna Blanchard, Chelsey Rose, Lauren Jones, Ruth Huxley and Kieran Lashford.
