Heron Bay Primary won top prize — and $2,500 — in a tree decorating competition held by Wedco.

The school was among ten who entered the Festival of Trees competition, with all the trees on display at the Clocktower Mall in Dockyard during the holiday season.

While Heron Bay won the grand prize, all of the schools involved in the competition received some prize money.

St David’s Primary took home $1,500 for their second place entry and Bermuda Institute won $1,000 and third place for their tree.

Whitney Institute and Mount Saint Agnes were each awarded $500 for their submissions, which came fourth and fifth in the competition respectively.

Other entries from Warwick Academy, West End Primary, Paget Primary, Port Royal Primary and Purvis Primary were given honourable mentions and $250 prizes.

Stephanie Rodill, Wedco’s marketing and events manager, said: “Every tree was a winner, they all looked great.

“Many congratulations to Heron Bay and we hope to see you taking part next year.”
