Launch of the Smoke Free Posters!

SmokeFreePostersOur School Council, Mr. Pywell, and Mrs. Erasmi attended the launch of The Smoke Free Poster Campaign. St. Stephen’s Junior were runners up with Athena Martin’s beautifully painted poster.

The signs have already been put up at both gates at St Stephen’s encouraging parents not to smoke at the school gates. It has been a very successful campaign and we are extremely proud of all the children that took part. The entries are displayed in our reception. Another successful event organised by our pro-active school council. We hope to make our runner ups poster by Athena into a sign and display it too at our gates.
