PUPILS at Goldsmith Infant School have been getting creative for Southampton Airport Fire Service.

Primary school pupils from across Hampshire have been invited to enter a competition to design a new health and safety training badge.

Fire crews from Southampton Airport Fire Service paid the Goldsmith School pupils a visit in Southsea to talk about fire training and to see their creative work in action as they got started on designing their versions of the new badge.

Southampton Airport Fire Service provides fire and health and safety training to schools and businesses across Hampshire and the new badge is needed for use on fire crew uniforms as well as health and safety training materials.

Pete Hart, Southampton Airport Fire Service fire training manager said: ‘We regularly run training sessions for schools and business across the area, so it seemed appropriate that we invite school pupils to help us with the badge design.

‘Some of the designs we’ve seen already have been very creative.’

Entries close on Friday, May 31.

Competition packs are available through
