PUPILS from St Benedict's School, Ealing, won first and third prizes in the National VE Day Poster Competition, run by the Spirit of Normandy Trust.

First was Mihiro in Year 5, with Evie, also in Year 5, finishing third in the KS2 age group.

The winners were chosen by veterans themselves, who were helped to view the posters online by their carers.

Years 5 and 6 at St Benedict's have been learning about the war in their "We'll meet again" topic.

Mihiro and Evie worked on their posters over lockdown at home in the spring, when their lessons were online.

The Spirit of Normandy Trust was founded for the welfare of veterans and their dependants, and to help educate people of all ages about the events of World War Two.
