NHC Motor Vehicle Students Launch A Christmas Campaign With Herts Fire And Rescue
Throughout the autumn term, our body and paint students have been working with Herts Fire and Rescue Service to develop a project to showcase their skills, through a high impact slogan campaign focusing on road safety in the festive period.
Students worked with the fire service to develop a slogan and ways to display their campaign message. Working together the final design was agreed. The students got busy creating the design in their workshops and, spraying the message onto a disused car.
Students were very hands-on and got the opportunity to paint and design the car in hopes to bring awareness to road safety. Body and Paint Student, Kieran Perkins said: “It was a good experience where everyone got to do everything themselves.” Other students found it was an enjoyable project to work on and very different from their everyday projects.
The car with the campaign message will now be displayed outside the Stevenage fire station throughout the festive period, positioned in a place of heavy traffic. It is hoped that many residents will see this slogan and take further consideration when driving during the festive period.
Herts Fire and Rescue Service, Fire Prevention Coordinator, Julie Springett said: “Green Watch from Stevenage Fire Station has been working with students from the North Herts College body and paint department to produce a display for our yearly Driving Home for Christmas Campaign. Every year a different road safety theme is chosen. This year we are focusing on vulnerable road users, so the students have integrated this into the display.”
