County Schools Challenge winners to launch healthy relationships booklet
Students who won a county-wide competition themed around healthy relationships are preparing to launch their winning idea into primary schools in Northamptonshire.

The group from Lodge Park Academy in Corby were in Year 7 when they won the 2015/16 County Schools Challenge with their booklet of short stories aimed at Key Stage 1 pupils (aged five to seven).

On Friday (30 June), the group will hold a launch for The Adventures of Frank and Timmy at Greenfields Primary School in Kettering, meeting Key Stage 1 pupils and teachers to explain the aims of their work.

Guests of honour will include competition judges Northamptonshire Police Chief Constable Simon Edens, Police and Crime Commissioner Stephen Mold and Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service Chief Fire Officer Darren Dovey.

Subject to operational demand, a fire crew will also attend to join the judges in reading the booklet to Greenfields pupils.

Following the launch, copies of the Frank and Timmy booklet will be distributed to primary schools across the county. Using the stories featuring a peaceful turtle and a shy fox, children and teachers can explore themes including making new friends, coping with scary situations and understanding and dealing with bullying. T-shirts featuring the characters will also be provided for teachers to wear.
