Our #PegsVLockers 2015 competition is now closed and we would like to say a big thank you and good luck to everyone who took the time to enter.
With the fantastic prize of £2,000 towards a school locker installation up for grabs, we received entries from schools all over the UK – and we were blown away by how colourful, clever and creative their submissions were. Here are a few of our favourites…
A picture speaks a thousand words – and we received plenty showing us just how cluttered and congested corridors can become when coat pegs are being used to store pupils’ belongings.
One of our favourite photos came from Etching Hill Primary in Rugeley, who used their students’ bags and coats to spell out their message – HELP US! View the gallery above to see some of the snaps that were sent in.
Several schools got their thinking caps on and put pen to paper to come up with poems explaining the problems they face with coat pegs.
Here’s the entry from Alderman Davies CIW Primary School in Neath:
Easington Church of England Primary School sent in this poem written by Year 6 Pupil Hannah Davidson. Very nicely done, Hannah!
There’s no more room,
It’s like a temple of doom!
The school is real dull,
The pegs are incredibly full.
It’s all a big fuss,
So please help us!
A few of the schools seeking the £2,000 locker prize decided to use video to show us just how in need of proper corridor and cloakroom storage they were. Here’s the entry from St. Elizabeth’s Primary School in Coventry (look out for the buried pupil!).
