Record Entry for Poster Competition

An annual schools' road safety poster competition has attracted a record number of entries this year. 

Five schools have taken part in the competition organised by Hethersett and the Meltons Road Safety Committee. 

For the first time all four Hethersett schools – Woodside First, Hethersett Middle, Hethersett High and Hethersett Old Hall School – took part and they were joined by Little Melton School. 

Over 200 colourful posters were submitted to the judging panel – all with a road safety theme. They ranged from the simplicity of reception classes to the more advanced style of youngsters from the high school who incorporated graphs and data in their messages. 

“In the past we have always had a theme for the competition but this year for the first time we allowed teachers to chose their own subjects,” said member of the judging panel and Hethersett Parish Councillor Fred Watkins. 

The result was numerous themes from children’s safety to drink-driving and speeding to the illegal use of mobile phones whilst driving. 

The committee agreed that the standard this year had been very high. The committee is planning to fit in a number of presentations at the various schools before the end of the current term when the winners will be announced. 

The winning posters will then go on display in Hethersett Library.
