Success on a plate for Rossendale girl

DESIGNS Laura's plate

DESIGNS Laura's plate

First published in Helmshore

A Rossendale youngster is looking forward to the royal treatment from Crown Carveries after winning a regional competition to design a commemorative plate for the royal wedding.

Helmshore Primary School pupil Laura Kilshaw will now get the chance to see her design made into a commemorative plate after scooping the regional prize.

Nine-year-old Laura will also get the red carpet treatment when she visits the Duke of Wellington Inn, on Grane Road, Haslingden, to enjoy a roast dinner with her family.

Laura is one of seven regional winners now competing to win £500 for their schools.

Christine Myers, head-teacher at Helmshore Primary, said: “Laura’s entry has created a real buzz in the school.

“And we’re now urging parents to log on to the Crown Carveries Facebook page to vote for her design in the final vote.”

Mrs Myers is not "taking the praise" for her pupil's work - Having been contacted by the press she is merely saying a few professional words to encourage this young lass in her endeavours.

If you have problems with the head teacher, or the school, be honest enough to air them.

Mrs Myers and all the teachers at Helmshore Primary School do an excellent job, they deserve a medal! I am proud to day that none of my childen, or grandchildren now, have every experienced any bullying at that school. Some people just love to play the vicitim. 'mys', you sound like one of them, so it is no wonder that your children follow your pathetic example. If you've got a problem with the school or the headteacher move your children somewhere else, there is plenty of choice, but you won't find better.

Oh! Let's not forget the little girl who should be at the center of this story. Well done, Laura Kilshaw!

Well thank you 'mys of Accrington' for showing everyone your true colours. I think we can all see now who the real bully is - YOU!
A little girl wins a competition and instead of congratulating her, all you can do is moan about an excellent headteacher running an excellent school.
Well done to Laura Kilshaw, and well done to everyone at Helmshore Primary School. Keep up the good work and don't be bullied by the likes of 'mys of Accrington'.

This is a public forum, you may have spoilt the occasion for this little girl and tried in vain to slur the good name of Helmshores wonderful village school. Disgraceful behaviour.

You clearly are a nasty piece of work, and without doubt you are a bully. Have you condsidered visiting your GP and talking about your anger issues? There are lots of new treatments that may be a help to you, and that can only make things easier for the poor people who have to come into contact with you (thankfully not me).
The next thing I am going to do will cause you great torment and distress, and send you into another one of your terrible uncontollable rages. You won't be able to contain your anger and you won't be able to stop yourself from posting more poison on here. But to no avail because I am going to treat you like any other bully I meet in life, I'm going to turn, walk away and ignore you.
Goodbye.

What connection to the school have you that makes you think that bullying is going on?

My youngest attends this school, and I have seen no evidence of bullying, either recently, or 20 years ago when my eldest attended.

The style of personal abuse you have chosen to aim at Norma15 is in itself redolent of a schoolyard bully, though looking at your abysmal grasp of the spelling, vocabulary and grammar, I appreciate that you "proberly" didn't attend often. You have made an allegation of bullying - so back it up. Don't get personal with those who would (albeit politely) disagree.
