Last Thursday, two teams of Lord Lawson students took part in the Smarter Parker final at the Mansion House in Newcastle.

Our Year 7 students were asked to write and perform a 40 second advert for SUN FM prompting safer parking and reducing traffic congestion around schools and in the local neighbourhood. Our two Year 7 teams were: the Congestion Crusaders and Bumper to Bumper. They presented their findings to a panel of SUN FM and Go Smarter representatives. After strong competition from Biddick and Boldon Academies, it was the Congestion Crusaders who emerged victorious.

There advert will be professionally recorded at the SUN FM studios and will be broadcast across the North East at the end of March. You can also hear the advert on Capital FM and Metro Radio as part of their prize.

Well done to both teams for taking part and remember to… Be a Smarter Parker!
