Pupils set out game plan

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

YOUNG­STERS are gear­ing up to de­fend their ti­tle as the most safety con­scious school chil­dren in the coun­try. Last year, pupils from Mer­sham Pri­mary School won the na­tional Playsafe com­pe­ti­tion, or­gan­ised by the Trad­ing Stan­dards In­sti­tute and the Bri­tish Toy and Hobby As­so­ci­a­tion. Kent County Coun­cil is en­cour­ag­ing more schools in the area to en­ter this year’s con­test, by de­sign­ing a toy or game suit­able for chil­dren aged three to seven. There are two age groups in the com­pe­ti­tion, six to 11 and 12 to 17. Prizes will be awarded to the best young de­sign­ers and their schools, and the over­all win­ner will be given £1,000 worth of IT equip­ment for their school. Those in­ter­ested in en­ter­ing the com­pe­ti­tion should con­tact San­dra Cook on 01233 652271. The clos­ing date for en­tries is May 18.
