“We are representing the constituency of Orkney and Shetland, two very distinct island groups. We have used the sporting colours of the two counties as the background,blue for Shetland and red for Orkney.We have then added the black raven to represent our joint Viking heritage. 5 pupils worked on this design. Our total school roll is 23.”
