Pupils from Bohunt School Wokingham in Arborfield Green received a visit from Crest Nicholson’s Senior Site Manager, Mike Rooney, on Thursday 27th June.
Students were invited to take part in a ‘Design Your Own Speed Limit Sign’ competition for the new 20mph speed limit sign to be displayed on the road approaching the school. Scott Black, Managing Director of Crest Nicholson Regeneration, judged the stiff competition ahead of Mike visiting the school to hand out the prizes in a special awards presentation.
The winner received a new iPad, kindly donated by Crest Nicholson’s Build Team. Second and third places received an MP3 player and stationery goody bag respectively.
Sammie Bryans, Development Director for Crest Nicholson, commented:
“We are delighted to be able to support the pupils through competitions like this. Bohunt School is a very important part of our new community here at Arborfield Green and we are very pleased to be able to work with them on events which have a real educational and community benefit – like this one.
Later this month, art pupils will be given the chance to decorate the hoarding facing the school whilst construction of the new Garden Village continues. Paint and prepared hoarding has been kindly supplied by Crest Nicholson’s Build Team.”
Matthew Garwell, Head of Art, added: “I am very proud to see such enthusiasm shown by our students in their inventive and creative use of both traditional and digital media in their competition entries. Working on projects such as this within our local community is so important and I am so pleased that our students have risen to the challenge with exciting visual designs. As our school continues to grow, I hope we have many more opportunities to celebrate the creativity and imagination of our wonderful students around this ever-growing community.”
