Pupils from Bohunt School Wokingham in Arborfield Green took part in a competition run by Crest Nicholson to promote a new 20mph speed limit near to their school in the Garden Village, with the winning design now on display.
Back in June, students were invited to take part in a ‘Design Your Own Speed Limit Sign’ competition to promote the new safer speed limits on the road approaching the Bohunt Schools. Scott Black, Managing Director of Crest Nicholson Regeneration, judged the stiff competition ahead of Senior Site Manager Mike Rooney 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.
The winning design is now on display along the Nine Mile Ride Extension approaching Bohunt School.
Sammie Bryans, Development Director for Crest Nicholson, commented:
“Bohunt School is a very important part of our new community here at Arborfield Green and we were very pleased to be able to work with them on this activity which has a real educational benefit while supporting young people to take ownership of their community. The signs look great and are a brilliant way of encouraging careful driving.”
Matthew Garwell, Head of Art, added:
“I was 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.”
