Shine news

Unlocking the Shine vaults…

Dear teachers,

Greetings from Shine – I hope like me you are all feeling the benefits of a little more light in the day and looking forward to the coming Spring.

I’m keeping it short and sweet this time as I know you are all super busy, but this week’s news is that we have a fantastic new resource which we hope will be useful and interesting to all schools thinking of entering the Shine competition.

Here you will find a record of all our past winning entries over the past eleven years. We hope this wonderful resource will demystify what constitutes a winner for those teachers new to Shine, as well as being a record for posterity. If your school has won or been highly commended in years past, those entries will be there. Take a look!

Remember, if you have any questions about what you can and can’t enter please get in touch on

All the best,

Alison Strachan
Chair of Shine
