Thank you to all the parents and learners that submitted designs for the Flag Design Competition. Your efforts are appreciated. The panel of 3 members of staff, 5 parents and 4 learners had a tough time choosing the winning three designs from the 25 designs submitted.

  • 1st and 2nd place went to Aiden Young
  • 3rd place went to the School Governing Body Chairperson - Gerna Jordaan

Their designs and those that the judges felt were notable can be seen at this link.
The next phase of the project will be to pull together elements from all of the designs submitted to create three choices. The learners will then vote to decide the final Lilyfontein School Flag.
