A GROUP of primary school pupils have been praised for their entries into a health and safety poster competition ran by Caldicot School.

Students from Castle Park, Dewstow, Undy, Rogiet, Durand and Archbishop Rowan Williams Church in Wales attended the Building Site Safety Poster award ceremony with their parents.

The winners were Megan Hunt (Rogiet), Violet Stones (Castle Park), Ella-Marie Mullen (Durand), Freddie Saunders (Dewstow), Eden Rudkin (Undy) and Bethan Silcox (Archbishop).

Violet Stones of Castle Park was deemed the overall winner of the competition for her impressive entry.

The competition was set up by Year 12 students Emily Lewis, Sophie Lewis, Georgia Mountfield and Maisha Miah as as part of their Welsh Baccalaureate studies along with Interserve, the company in charge of the new build at Caldicot.

The school’s Welsh Baccalaureate co-ordinator Virginia Johnston added: “I gave them an acorn of an idea a few months ago and now we have the Forest of Dean.”

Head teacher Susan Gwyer-Roberts also praised the girls’ hard work and deemed the importance of such posters as “critical”.

Peter Nurcombe, chairman of governors at Caldicot, presented the pupils their certificates.
