Amelia and James PQA

Congratulations to year 7 student Amelia O’Brien and her family who have won a free 7 day, all inclusive holiday to The Savannah Beach Hotel in Barbados thanks to the Pauline Quirke Academy and Virgin Holidays.

Amelia entered a competition run by PQA for which she had to submit a photo of herself, holding a promotional flyer in an imaginative location.

Amelia chose to take her photo on the beach at Scarborough with the catch phrase:

“I’m dreaming of a holiday to Barbados, NOT Scarbados!”

PQA Admission

The judging panel, which included Pauline Quirke said “it’s a very witty picture and we can see a lot of thought had gone into the entry. It was also very brave of the family to recreate a holiday scene on a beach in Scarborough in this weather!”

The aim of the competition was to promote a new project being started by the Pauline Quirke Academy and Virgin Holidays. From February 2015, children and their families staying at the Savannah Beach hotel on     Barbados’ beautiful south coast, will not only be able to enjoy the fantastic kids clubs that are already in place, they’ll be able to join in on bespoke performing arts classes designed by the popular TV actress.
