Derbyshire’s Little Success Stories – July

Derbyshire’s Little Success Stories – July

Two children from Chesterfield and Langley Mill School have received awards from the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) after winning the Internet safety project, ‘WISE’. The project aimed at deaf and autistic young people was created to educate the vulnerable children in the community about the potential dangers of the internet and social media. Students across the country were tasked with designing a DVD for the non-verbal performance from a deafness theatre company.

Pupils across Derbyshire have been taking part in the ‘Fashion for Free!’ competition, designing and making textiles creations. The competition was created to recognize and reward some of Derbyshire’s best designers. Students created an item of clothing by utilising fabrics from their school and home.

Monyash Primary School’s May Market raised a large sum of £3,160 for vital learning resources. Hundreds of children, parents and teachers took part in the event, showing their dedication to the school.School children across many counties, including Derbyshire, recently took part in a ‘record-breaking’ First Aid Lesson. A large total of 1,795 pupils, more than 150 volunteers including nine Nottinghamshire Police employees contributed to the event who all received medals for taking part in the most populated first aid training lesson in which police taught students lifesaving skills.

Students in the north east of Derbyshire have been out with their policing team, carrying speed checks and warning motorists about safe driving. Drivers who broke the speed limit near the schools were stopped and given the option of speaking to the pupils about their speed. The youngsters also designed and handed out speeding Derbyshireposters to motorists.
