House Photographic Competition


Mr Paul Smith, former Chair of Governors, returned to judge the 2018 House Photographic Competition. He commented that the standard of entries was higher than ever and that choosing winners in each of the Nine categories was an extremely difficult task.

The overall winner, Zia Cummings will have her picture turned into a 1000 piece jigsaw and Mr Smith will also organise for the school to have a copy. We are delighted that so many at the Dixie have engaged with this year’s competition—many congratulations to the winners.
