Deeside primary school children helped police and firefighters launch the Summer Schoolwatch campaign this week.

Schoolwatch is a scheme which aims to encourage everyone to keep an eagle eye on schools across North Wales, ensuring they are safe and free from crime and antisocial behaviour over the summer break.

Pupils from Golftyn County Primary School in Connah’s Quay took the opportunity to look around the police and fire vehicles, trying on items of uniform and listening to advice from officers.

“We want members of the public to help us prevent and report any criminal activity.

“Schools have limited budgets and valuable resources which should be used to educate children and not be diverted to deal with theft and criminal damage.

“Officers spoke to the children at Golftyn CP School highlighting the importance of being good citizens and co-operating with us by keeping off school premises during the summer holidays.

“Anyone who sees suspicious behaviour around our schools this summer should call police 101.”
