Well done to Year 8 student Faith who has won a major competition to design the trophy that will be presented to all the champions in the South Kent Mind annual wellbeing 2021 awards. 

Last week, budding artist Faith was able to see her design fully transformed into a 3D trophy, cut out of sustainable bamboo, when she visited Cactus Graphics in Dover.

She is pictured proudly holding the first model to come off the production line, which she has been given to keep as a souvenir.

The school will also receive a trophy which can be awarded in future to students for projects linked to wellbeing.

Wendy Brown, Co-ordinator of Student Mental Health & Wellbeing at Homewood, said: “All Homewood students were invited to enter the competition and we were thrilled when Faith got through to the final and then went on to win. Her design is fantastic and what an amazing experience for her to actually see it go from artwork idea to finished product.  It will also be wonderful to have one of these trophies to hand out in the future to our students.”

Homewood was one of the first schools in the county to receive a Kent Award for Resilience and Emotional Wellbeing, in recognition of its innovative programmes that support student wellbeing and positive mental health.
