Free bot­tle for all school’s pupils

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

YOUNG­STERS at a city school are keep­ing re­freshed this sum­mer drink­ing from wa­ter bot­tles de­signed by their fel­low pupils.

All 180 chil­dren at St Au­gus­tine’s School on Palmer­ston Road, Peter­bor­ough, re­ceived free bot­tles last week.

The de­sign of a blue top, clear body and school logo was cre­ated by the school’s com­mit­tee, which in­cludes two pupils from each of its classes.

Head­teacher Stephen Cox said: “The bot­tles are fan- tastic and all the pupils love them.

“It is very im­por­tant that they stay hy­drated in the sum­mer and this is a way of mak­ing sure ev­ery pupil has ac­cess to drinks.

“The com­mit­tee are re­ally happy and we are proud with the work they did.

“They did all the re­search and sent the de­signs off and did a great job.”

Cash for the project was gen­er­ated through a non-school uni­form day ear­lier in the month, rais­ing £388.
