A SCHOOLGIRL from Bromborough has been making history after seeing her award-winning work on display at a national exhibition in Leeds.

Ten-year-old Emily Keen, who attends Brookhurst Primary School, was crowned the winner of a Marks & Spencer competition in the summer after designing an advert to promote the company’s new eLearning Hub – which includes archive materials from the company’s 129-year history, covering a variety of subjects including history, science, maths and English.

Since then, Emily’s piece of advertising has been on display at the public exhibition of the M&S Company Archive.

As part of her prize, she and her year six classmates were invited to visit the exhibition to see the artwork on display and learn about World War II.

“Seeing my advert on display at the exhibition was great and made me feel very proud that all my classmates could see my work,” said Emily.

“It was really fun to see all of the real life items in person that I had seen online on the eLearning Hub when putting my advert together.”

Headteacher Liz Davidson said: “The eLearning Hub is a fantastic resource and following it up by visiting the exhibition was a great experience for our pupils.

“I was delighted to see Emily’s work on display at a national exhibition and it’s great that the history of such a well-known company has engaged our pupils and brought subjects that they are currently studying in class to life.”

The eLearning Hub is available to schools and educational establishments at mylearning.org/the-mands-company-archive
