Our School Councillors invited the whole school to take part in a competition to design the best Snowdog. Each pupil was given a template of the Snowdog and asked to illustrate it by thinking about what Walkergate meant to them. An overall winner from each year group was selected by the councillors and a small part of each winning design, was chosen to be transferred onto the Snowdog. Our school councillor representatives from each year group worked alongside the competition winners to complete the design and discussed their ideas together. The children chose to feature Blue and Yellow as the dominant colours on their design scheme as these are the school colours. 

Nexus have sponsored this Snowdog.
