Pupils’ logo competition

PUPILS at Woodlands Primary School, Carnoustie, missed out on the prizes in a logo competition for the Paediatric Overweight Service Tayside (POST) of NHS Tayside.

A total of 47 pupils rose to the challenge and the two prizes went to youngsters from Strathmore Primary School, Forfar, each of whom received a three-month B Active membership allowing free access to Angus Council leisure centres.

They had been asked to come up with a logo for the POST school-based programme Fun Fit Tayside 1, 2, 3.

During March, the POST team, along with Active Schools co-ordinators, visited primary schools across Angus and Perth & Kinross to highlight the importance of healthy eating and physical activity.

The team delivered six weekly workshops to the pupils and, at the end of the programme, asked the children to get creative and take part in the logo competition.

POST is a specialist weight management service for children which aims to support them to manage their weight.
