Bishopton school pupils design speed awareness signs

Bishopton Primary School pupils have been busy designing special speed awareness posters which have been placed around Bishopton and Dargavel Village. 
The posters were designed as part of a competition, arranged by BAE Systems, to highlight the importance of motorists to drive with care throughout the villages.
 
A judging panel, consisting of local community members and representatives from BAE Systems, deliberated to choose the winning designs which would be turned into signs.
The three winners were:
 
  • Callum Scott from class P2C
  • Abby Gray from class P4C
  • Zara Allan from class P4C

Each of the pupils won a framed copy of their pictures, a prize and had their designs placed around Bishopton and Dargavel Village. As a thank you, all the pupils who took part also received an art set.
 
Jon Gettinby, Bishopton Programme Manager for BAE Systems, said: “The regeneration of the former ROF Bishopton to Dargavel Village is an exemplar brownfield regeneration project which is bringing land back into beneficial use for the next generation.
 
“Road safety and speed awareness is an important issue and the signs look great around the villages. I’d like to thank the teachers at Bishopton Primary School for helping us to run the competition and a special thank you to all of the pupils who took part for making it such a difficult decision to choose the winners.”
