Pupils from both the senior and junior schools have had their
cars of the future designs buried in a time capsule in the
foundations of the new Williams BMW dealership in Bolton.
A competition was held with two age categories - Junior (7-11
years) and Senior (11-16 years) across both the boys' and girls'
junior and senior schools. In each category, a first, second and
third prize was awarded for the best design of a car for the road
in 50 years' time. Across the School, hundreds of pupils took
part and the competition was fierce. Pupils went to great length
with their drawings, descriptions and designs - many showed
different elevations of their futuristic car on A3 sheets.
The difficult task of judging was performed by Williams BMW and
the Mayor of Bolton, Cllr Anthony Connell.
In the Junior category the first three were all boys: Sean
Pendlebury of Year 3 was adjudged the winner and he received £100
of Selfridges vouchers. Adam Critchlow came second and Zakary
Harrison-Twist, Year 6, came third. They both collected £25 worth
of Selfridges vouchers.
In the Senior section the winner, and overall competition
winner, was Connor Benson. He received £100 worth of Selfridges
vouchers. Runners-up were Chloe Wynne of Year 8 and Priya Pancholi
of Year 7 from the Girls' Division, who also received £25
The six pupils joined the Mayor and representatives of Williams
BMW for a lunch and to bury the time capsule in the foundations of
the new Williams BMW dealership on 6 June. The £10 million
Manchester Road dealership is due to open in December 2008 and is
set to become a landmark in the town. The new dealership will
display the pupils' entries.
The winning entries were placed in the time capsule along with
BMW and MINI memorabilia, a signed BWFC pennant flag and a number
of daily newspapers and magazines.
