THESE youngsters certainly know how to get their message across.
When pupils at St Aidan’s Primary School, in Hartlepool, were asked to come up with artwork for a health and safety poster competition, they did it in style.
Hartlepool-based housebuilder Yuill Homes challenged Key Stage 1 and 2 pupils at the school on Loyalty Road to take part in a competition to design posters highlighting the dangers of local building sites.
The competition was held following a visit from Yuill Homes’ health and safety manager Glyn Neasham who presented winners with book vouchers.
Mr Neasham said: “It was fantastic to see the pupils at St Aidan’s Primary School get involved in the poster competition and I’d like to congratulate the winners.
“Yuill Homes is committed to working within the community and has a responsibility to raise the awareness amongst local children about the hazards of nearby building sites. ”
The winning pupils were Key Stage 1 winner Liberty Luke, with Alex Welsh in second and Maddison Lake in third. Key Stage 2 winners included Ethan Swift in first, with Lewis Fannan in second and Emily Johnson in third.
Headteacher Ian Railton said: “We were very pleased to work in partnership with Yuill Homes to help inform our pupils about the hazards of playing next to local building sites. Everyone enjoyed working on their posters and we hope that the advice they have been given will help to keep them safe in the future.”
The health and safety poster competition was held following Yuill Homes’ starting construction work on site at its new Cecil Court development in Loyalty Road.
