Since our last Newsletter we have had the pleasure of judging greetings cards designed by pupils at the Special Schools in the area. In the event we decided to split the first prize between two designs, one depicting Newcastle and the other illustrating the concept of caring for others less fortunate. Both of these were submitted by students at The Coppice.
A second prize for an attractive abstract design was awarded to Blackfriars school.
We hope that the mainstream schools are already working on their 2009 project for which entries need to be submitted by 20th June.
It is our hope that by involving local schools in various projects we can encourage young people to take an interest in their town and its development.
