St Albans children draw road safety designs in poster competition
Road safety, cyber-bullying and anti-social behaviour signs were just some of the images drawn by children in a poster competition.
Year 3 to 6 pupils were invited by the Community Safety Partnership to design a poster with a community safety message.
Lucy Robinson, Luke Chick, Imandi Kumarapeli and Isaac Clinton, all Camp Primary School pupils, were named the winners.
The Mayor of St Albans, Geoff Harrison, presented certificates and gift-tokens to the competition winners at St Albans District Council on Thursday, June 26.
The competition was designed to reinforce some of the lessons learned on a Crucial Crew visit by the children to St Albans Fire Station in March. Crucial Crew is organised by the Partnership and is designed to help children learn about safety and how to respond to everyday risks and hazards.
Mayor Harrison said: “I was very impressed with the high standard of entries and want to congratulate all those who took part in the competition. The students have shown a great understanding of safety issues, as well as real flair and creativity with their poster designs.”
