And the St Ignatius Catholic Primary School pupils won first prize for their efforts.

Nathan Pithers, of Netherton J&I School, came second with his photograph of a puppy playing, and Isobel Langworth, of St Peter’s and Clifton School, came third with her photo ‘jumping Bryony’.

Two other Netherton pupils Jacob Parsons and Gianna Brown-Moccia, and St Ignatius’ Sarah Exley were highly commended.

The schools were free to choose topics, but were encouraged to think about what makes a good photo.

Ian Siragher, of the Rotary club, said there were 22 entries in total from the three schools.

He said: “We asked the schools to aim for a close-up, or something involving movement or buildings.

“The children have done really well and we were very impressed with the entries.

“Some of them were quite creative with effects and some did really well to portray a feeling of movement.”
