A group of year five pupils at Oadby’s Brookside Primary School were presented (Friday 25 January) with a winning voucher for creating their very own community safety poster.
This was part of a competition set by Oadby and Wigston’s Community Safety Partnership who visited the school to look at all the posters designed and talk about safety in the community.
The pupils had been studying crime and punishment and were asked to make posters relating to this topic - the winning poster was titled ‘Respect Our World!’
Staff at Brookside Primary School selected the winning design and a presentation was made by Police Sergeant Jamie Reeve alongside Oadby and Wigston Borough Cllr Kevin Lloydall and Deputy Mayor, Cllr Lynda Eaton JP. (Pictured below with staff and the winning pupils.)
Cllr Kevin Loydall said:" I would like to thank Usha Dave of Brookside Primary for inviting our Commuity Safety Partnership team to come along and talk to the pupils about the role of ‘Community Safety’ and how it can make a difference to all our communities.
"They were great to work with and they all contributed to the debate fully. Their poster designs said it all - so congratulations to the winning team.”
The primary purpose of the Community Safety Partnership is to make the Borough a safer place to live, work, school in, and visit. Everyone has a right to feel safe as they go about their daily lives and this can be achieved by all of us playing our part in tackling issues of crime and disorder.
