ECO-aware pupils at a Greenock secondary school have been crowned winners of an art contest launched by a well-known Inverclyde business.

Creative young people at Notre Dame High School joined forces with global paper and packaging firm PG Paper on the COP26-inspired activity.

The Greenock-headquartered firm asked the young creatives to come up with designs around the theme of sustainability and the importance of being mindful of our impact on the environment.

A total of 320 artistic pupils took part in the competition and PG Paper bosses chose a class of 20 pupils from S1, and another 20 pupils from S2 as the victors.

The winning classes were awarded Amazon vouchers for purchasing supplies for the school's art department, and pupils received an assortment of arts and crafts goodies.

PG Paper CEO Puneet Gupta said the winning designs will be placed on the walls of the boardroom in the firm's Greenock headquarters.

He added: "As the environment was so high on the agenda during COP26, we thought it was a great opportunity to engage with the local community and get the younger generation thinking about sustainability.

"The pupils created some fantastic designs and it was a real pleasure to see what they came up with."

Notre Dame art teacher Ms Montgomery said she was impressed by the knowledge shown by the young people, and by how that influenced their designs.

She added: "The pupils thoroughly enjoyed taking part in this competition and the winners are over the moon.

"The last two years have been particularly challenging for our pupils and the competition has helped bring us together."
