Rosie Harrison walks to school whenever she can - but now she could travel by scooter if she wanted.

10-year-old Rosie, a pupil at Thorner Primary School, has won the scooter as part of a prize draw in which to win all the children had to walk to and from school for a week.

And she is not the only member of her school to win a prize recently.

Alongside Rosie, fellow pupil, 10-year-old Oliver Pickering has won the worldwide Superclub competition to design a t-shirt.

Superclubs Plus, an online platform designed to help school children develop their IT skills, ran a recent competition to design a t-shirt around the theme of internet safety. Oliver’s design was one of the winning entries. Oliver was delighted to receive the t-shirt that was sent from Australia – which is where Superclubs is now based.”

Rosie and Oliver are both delighted with their gifts. Rosie said: “I am really surprised to have won the award. I don’t believe it,”

“I never thought I’d ever win anything this good.” Rosie, along with her sister Ciara and brother Jay, all walk to school whenever they can to help the environment and get some exercise.
