It was an eventful day for the children at St Mary’s Catholic School in Pembroke Dock this month (Friday March 6) as staff from Morganstone and Pembrokeshire Housing Association announced the lucky winner of a poster competition.
More than 40 children entered the competition, which tasked them with designing a safety poster for the new building development at Imble Lane, near the school.
After much deliberation among the judges, Sadie Hall, 9 Years old was announced as the winner, and was presented with drawing materials as a prize. Her poster will be used at the site to remind people of the dangers of a building development and to encourage children to stay out.
Pembrokeshire Housing Association also gave to the school a collection of atlases to use.
Morganstone also donated £100 to the school.
Julie Frazer, head teacher for St Mary’s Catholic School, said:
“We have really enjoyed working with Morganstone on this competition. The children received some extremely important safety information, and are now more aware of hazards on a building site. We would also like to say a big thank you to PHA for the atlases they have kindly donated to us.”
Ben Aubrey, site manager of Morganstone, said
“I would like to thank all of the children for their efforts for this competition. The response has been amazing and I’m glad I didn’t have to judge. The presentation has been taken seriously by the children and they are now fully aware of the dangers of a building site.”
Gary Meskimmon, Pembrokeshire Housing Association, said:
“We are really pleased to have supported this competition with Morganstone and we are delighted to have presented the atlases to the school.”
