Safer internet challenge winners

School pupils from across North Lanarkshire have been developing creative campaigns to make the internet a safer place


The Child Protection Committee set pupils a challenge to come up with a form of communication to promote kindness and respect to each other online.

The challenge follows on from the Safer Internet day event in February where P7 pupils attended a half day event at the Civic Centre in Motherwell. 

Susan Mitchell, Co-ordinator Child Protection, said: "We were very happy with the quality of entries to the challenge.  Winners were selected by a panel of judges and each school wins £200."

The winners are:

Primary Winners

  • St Bernadettes' Primary School by two P7 pupils (Nathan and Kyle) who produced a short animation
  • Wishaw Academy Primary School by P4 Bay 7 who designed a poster

Secondary Winners

  • Our Lady's Motherwell by S1 pupil (Charlie) who designed a poster
  • Buchanan High School (ASN school) by S6 English class who produced a collection of poems
