A PUPIL from Edinbarnet Primary School has won a competition held by the council thanks to her colourful entry.

More than 600 youngsters entered the annual road safety calendar competition.

But primary six pupil Taylor Bennett, (pictured left) took the top prize for her drawing which says STOP alongside a car and a sign reading “20 is plenty”.

Her creation will now be used in the 2020 calendar distributed to all schools, council offices, community education centres, libraries and health centres.

Taylor was presented with a trophy and a £40 voucher for her efforts by Councillor Iain McLaren and Catherine Tonner, the council’s road safety officer.

The school also celebrated primary three pupil, Frankie Carroll (pictured right), whose design was chosen as the best in her age group and will now be on display in libraries throughout the area.

Edinbarnet was also presented with the road safety trophy to put on display.

Councillor Iain McLaren said: “Congratulations to Taylor and Frankie and to all the boys and girls who took time to enter this competition.

“Taylor’s design was chosen because it was bright and colourful, and it also has an extremely important message to drivers to watch their speed, especially when driving close to a school.

“The safety of our residents is a top priority for the council and this competition opens up a conversation about road safety with our young people, teaching them how to be safe in a fun and educational way.”
