Children from Grazebrook Primary School, Lordship Road, N16, have taken part in a poster competition, organised by Hackney Police.
Year five and six children were asked to design ‘People Who Help Us’ posters, which will be displayed at Stoke Newington Police Station.
“Yet again I left a group of young Hackney citizens inspired and energized.”
Yesterday [23.4.2013], Hackney’s Borough Commander Matthew Horne and local Safer Neighbourhoods officers attended Grazebrook Primary School’s assembly. Thirteen children were surprised and really excited to be awarded winning certificates.
The children were also given the chance to ask questions and to put their hands up if they recognised their local PCSOs.
Their prize also includes a visit to Stoke Newington Police Station to view their winning entries. They will also be given a chance to look around the station and ask questions.
Borough Commander, Matthew Horne, said: “The children designed the most beautiful posters around the theme of ‘people who help us’. It was a privilege to attend the morning assembly and award the winners with certificates. Yet again I left a group of young Hackney citizens inspired and energized.”
Derek Hewie, Head of School, said: “Designing the posters gave Grazebrook children the chance to show their artistic flair whilst also promoting local police and fellow emergency services to the community. The children can’t wait to visit Stoke Newington Police Station to see their posters displayed in all their glory”.
