CRADLE HILL PRIMARY WINS SAFETY IN ACTION AWARD
July 2 2014.
Following the successful Safety In Action Week held in May at Newhaven Fort between 23 local Primary Schools in the area, Cradle Hill School was judged the overall winner. The event is organised by Lewes District Council & Sussex Police and has been supported for many years by The Rotary Club of Seaford.
This year the club gave an addition cash gift to allow the competitors and helpers to wear new high-viz jackets, which proved invaluable in identifying the school teams competing, as over 800 children took part during the week. Also, a new engraved shield was presented, for the first time, to Cradle Hill.
The purpose of the week is to teach children aged ten and eleven n teams the basic skills over ten disciplines to remain safe (emergency services were present) and they were scored on what they had learnt.
At the award ceremony, which was held at Cradle School on the 23rd of June, Cllr. Tony Nicholson, chairman of LDC, and acting head teacher Julie Foley gave a vote of thanks on behalf of the school.
Thanks are due to PC Carolyn Ross and Tony Still, senior environmental officer, who have organised the event for many years.
Presenting the Shield and a cash prize to Cradle Hill on behalf of the Rotary Club of Seaford was President Michael Logan.
