Quick-thinking primary pupils have won an award for their efforts tackling police and ambulance scenarios.

Year six children from Harold Wood Primary School have been named Junior Citizens 2014 after completing a series of challenges along with 26 other Havering primary schools.

The children took on two weeks of fire brigade, road safety and drugs service tasks and challenges to test their skills and knowledge.

The top-scoring team from Harold Wood included Emily Kidd, Molly Smith, Chloe Endean, Shawn Shodimu, Sitara Bhati and Alfie Knight, who were awarded with medals and a shield at Romford Town Hall.

Harold Wood head of year Mrs Kellie Downes said: “They all thoroughly enjoyed the event and they learned so much about being responsible citizens.”

The winners got to have lunch with mayor Cllr Linda Trew and police borough commander Jason Gwillam on Friday.

Winning pupil Rose-Smith said: “I’ve learnt about how to behave on buses and that we should tell the driver if we see anything left behind in case it is dangerous.” She added: “It was really, really fun.”

The town hall trip was organised by schools officer PC Melissa Gilmour and Havering Council’s Community Safety Partnership.

Mrs Downes added: “I think it’s very important because it gets the children to see the bigger picture - they really got a lot out of it.”

Cllr Osman Dervish said: “We are very proud of this event - it is fun and interactive while conveying some serious messages.”
