A SCHOOL computer club has been announced as the runner-up in a national animation competition.

The club from Windwhistle Primary School in Kingsley Road has won £500.

The competition was run by the RAC, the Government’s road safety campaign Think! and Wallace and Gromit creators Aardman Animations.

To enter the competition, the children had to create an animation with a road safety message.

Pete Williams, the RAC’s head of external affairs, said: “The children were very enthusiastic about the subject of road safety and relished the opportunity to create an animation to get their message across.”

The pupils also won road safety kits with high-visibility vest and bike lights.
