LINDOW Primary School pupils are celebrating a runners-up spot in an Apprentice competition run by Manchester Airport.

A team of year six children represented their class in the competition, which saw 14 schools working on a marketing campaign to raise awareness of sun safety.

The Lindow team named themselves the Lindow Sun Safety Group and presented a poster and radio advertisement to a panel of four.

Amelia Lomas, deputy headteacher and year six teacher said: "It was an incredible opportunity for the children to be part of a real life presentation to a panel of unknown adults.

“They worked fantastically as a team, supported each other and had a lot of fun along the way.

“The resources Manchester Airport provided were excellent, and we were lucky to have Ruth Patten as our nominated business advisor. All in all it was a great team effort. We were thrilled to come runners-up."

The school’s prize was a visit to school from an ice cream van, and all the class got to celebrate their achievements with a cornet each.
