Need to move a picture on top of other pictures in word

Hi All,

I have got stuck helping my son do his homework and wondered if you may be able to help me.  In the attached word.doc is the layout he wants but at the bottom is some text setup as a picture also.  He wants to make this text appear on top of the other images in the middle of the page.

Any help greatly appreciated.

We aren't supposed to help with homework. I'm not sure if helping someone to help with homework counts.

The pictures in the document are all 'in-line' and must be converted to 'floating'. Right-click on the picture, and choose 'Format Picture...'  from the pop-up. Choose the 'Layout tab' on the dialogue and select 'In front of text'. OK that away, and you will be able to drag the picture over the others.
