THERE was great excitement at St Joseph’s School in Invercargill recently when three of its pupils found out they had been successful in the Kids Can New Zealand Christmas Cup Art Competition.
Emma Ramsay (centre, 9) was awarded third place in the competition and will have her design replicated on to Coffee Club Christmas takeaway cups while Rishealee Rodrigo (left) and Ghighi Davis (both 9) were awarded highly commended in the competition.
Emma said it took about a week to draw her entry and was surprised when she heard she had won.
‘‘I’m happy, very excited,’’ she said.
While other pupils throughout New Zealand received Coffee Club vouchers, the three girls were sent Warehouse vouchers as there was no Coffee Club in Invercargill.
Emma and Rishealee were hoping to buy Lego and clothes with their winnings, while Ghighi was hoping to buy a phone.
