John Healey made a special visit to Wath Central Primary School recently.

The Wentworth and Dearne MP announced the winner of his Christmas Card Competition for 2023 at a special assembly.

The winner and runners up, all aged between 3 and 10, were presented with gifts and a copy of the winning card for their family.

John said: “As always, the standard of entries was high and choosing a winner was very difficult.

“I want to thank all the children at Wath Central Primary for taking part and for welcoming me to their school assembly.

“I’m really pleased that Leela Dodd produced such a lovely hand printed Christmas tree picture that I’ll be able to send out to over a thousand people locally, in Westminster and around the world this year.”

Wath Central Primary Headteacher, Jude Gray, said: “It was great to take part in John’s Christmas card competition this year.

“Our students really enjoyed it and came up with some brilliant designs.

“Well done to everyone that took part and especially well done to Leela on her winning design.”
