A Scarborough youngster’s drawing has been used to create a 125th anniversary commemorative medal for his school.

Brody Norton-Hunter, seven, won a competition at Gladstone Road Infant School to design an image which would be printed up on hundreds of medals, which are set to be handed out to pupils and staff at the end of term.

Around 120 pupils from six to seven years old took part and Brody’s picture was chosen as the overall winner.

Brody said: “I was really excited when I found out I’d won and I was really proud.”

Deputy headteacher Claire Barber said: “It is a fantastic design that really represents the school well. It will remind children of the 125th anniversary celebrations in years to come.”

She added that Brody’s design was very clear and stood out from the rest.

All pupils were tasked with producing a drawing that would focus on the original architectural features of the school, as new parts have been added to the building over the years.

The design shows an old part of the school which can be seen from the playground. Brody is pictured with teacher Amy Garrick in the school playground. Picture by Richard Ponter 132823a
