Pupils put their art and soul into a competition to mould and decorate plaster of Paris, during a visit by an expert.

The youngsters from Gorseybrigg Primary School, in Dronfield, were shown how to mix the plaster and make moulds from it by Shaun Turnell, of the architectural mouldings company, Hodkin and Jones.

The children then took part in a competition organised by Hodkin and Jones. Each child was given the choice of a plaster of Paris decoration in the shape of either a snowman or a Christmas tree and was asked to paint and decorate their entry.

Headteacher Nancy White judged the competition, awarding first prize of a toy shop voucher to Jake Hirst and the runner-up prize of a selection box to Claudia Turnell.
