Congratulations to JBug Edward Wright who has won a roundel design competition commemorating the Lord Mayor Alderman Vincent Keaveny’s term of office. 

Mr Coma, Head of Junior Year had seen the #LMReflects competition and set it as an interform challenge. The students had to research Alderman Vincent Keaveny both in form times, and in their own time, and create a design to encapsulate the spirit and values of the former 693rd Lord Mayor. 

The judging panel were impressed with Edward’s design and commented, “[it is] a great design concept that shows originality in both composition and detail; judges all felt the abstracted forms with hidden elements, were very engaging. The entry also shows understanding and research in The Lord Mayor. Edward’s narrative reflects that of his roundel design with artefacts synonymous with Alderman Keaveny’s pursuits, illustrated abstractly as shown in the diversity of shapes and colours mimicking the diversity of communities that bank the sides of River Thames, and the subtly of the hidden images, a nice touch.” 

Edward’s design will now be produced in stained glass by Elizabeth Sinkova, who won the professional stained glass competition in 2022, and was on the judging panel. Edward and his family have been invited to this year’s Reflections of The Lord Mayor Gala Evening where he will have the opportunity to present his finished stained glass roundel design to Alderman Vincent Keaveny himself. Edward has also won prize money of £100, and the school has won some art supplies. 

Mr Coma, Head of Junior Year, says, “I was delighted to see so many of the Junior Year enter the #LMReflects Roundel Design Competition. There were some very creative entries, and we were thrilled to hear the news that Edward Wright has won the competition! Well done to all JBugs who entered, and particularly to Edward on his high acclaim!”
