Ron with Xmas card competition winners
Pupils at a local primary school received a visit during assembly on Monday [1st December] from Ron Hogg, Durham’s Police and Crime Commissioner, to announce the winners of his latest competition.
Ron first visited Wolsingham Primary School last month, when he invited pupils from Years 5 and 6 to design a Christmas card in the theme of 'Staying Safe at Christmas'.
Ron said: "This was a great example of young people getting involved and thinking creatively about their environment and what they can do to stay safe.
"There were many excellent drawings covering different kinds of safety, including locking your house, watching out for others, wearing your seatbelts and wearing reflective clothing on dark nights."
The winning entry was by Niamh Creaser, age 9, who received a £20 Waterstones gift card and a certificate for her 'Stay Safe, Be Seen' design.
Runners up were Ellie Best (age 10) and Holly Beattie (age 11) who each received a £10 Waterstones gift card and a certificate.
"It was a difficult to judge with so many fabulous entries. A big thank you to all those who took part and to the teachers for getting involved. Well done."
Sarah Kitching, Head Teacher said: “The children did a fantastic job. It was great for them to meet Ron and the competition provided them with an opportunity to demonstrate what they had learnt during our ‘Keeping Ourselves Safe’ active learning week."
