Students at St. Mary's Catholic School on Beaumont Road, Wednesbury, have made the colourful poster following the retirement of their lollipop lady in November last year.

Students took part in a competition created by the road safety team at Sandwell Council to encourage drivers to use the roads safely to safeguard children.

The students created designs for posters to encourage road users to drive and park in a responsible manner, with the best designs being included on a banner to be showcased outside of the school grounds.
