Newchurch Primary Pupils Win Award for Team Safety Project.

Cllr Carol Benson was delighted to be invited to present the award to Lewis and Harry from year 5 at Newchurch Primary School. As nominated Safety Officers they worked with their class colleagues and across the school to come up with ideas for projects and campaigns to raise the profile of safety in school & the local community. This included playground checks, making posters and advertising how to use equipment safely and even running a leaflet campaign for residents to encourage them not to leave cars idling to reduce emissions. They held a bike tagging session and invited the local PCSOs to come to school to discuss community safety. The competition was open to all Primary Schools across Warrington, this year Newchurch were the winning school.
