Newton Farm Primary School pupils set sail on the iconic Waverley steamer today after finishing runner-up in our competition.

Kids were tasked with making a replica of the boat from their household items to win the "unforgettable" trip as part of a competition which featured in our newspaper titles across the West of Scotland.

Glasgow Times:

The South Lanarkshire school class set sail down the famous River Clyde, viewing landmarks such as the restored Victorian sailing ship Glenlee and the historic Dumbarton Castle sitting on the volcanic Dumbarton Rock as a result of their impressive entry.

The youngsters got a behind-the-scenes look at the engine in action, saw the paddle steamers turn and met the captain.

They were joined by the The P5 class at Aileymill Primary in Greenock, who finished in first place.

Glasgow Times:

Stacey Mullen, Glasgow Times editor, said: “The Glasgow Times was impressed with the high quality of entries for this incredible Waverley competition.

“We are delighted that Newton Farm Primary got the chance to sail on this iconic boat and a huge congratulations to Aileymill Primary in Greenock for their fantastic entry.”

The competition featured in the Greenock Telegraph, Glasgow Times, Largs and Millport Weekly News, Ardrossan and Saltcoats Herald, Cumnock Chronicle, Ayr Advertiser, Helensburgh Advertiser, and Clydebank Post and was arranged to mark the 75th anniversary of the world's last sea-going paddle steamer.

The competition was run in partnership with sponsors McGill's.

Well done to everyone who entered, and congratulations to the winners.
