Pembrokeshire pupils share the message about youth homelessness

Young competition winners from Hook CP School and St Oswalds CiW School

The Pembrokeshire Foyer Project recently invited Pembrokeshire schools to design a poster to raise awareness of Homelessness in Pembrokeshire. Both St Oswalds Church in Wales School and Hook Community Primary School gave a terrific response, with pupil designs sharing the important message of how we can support young people at risk or affected by homelessness.

Barry John MBE, founder of The VC Gallery, and his team hosted the awards ceremony for the competition, and welcomed the prize-winning poster designers and members of their family to the Bridge Street Gallery. The pupils enjoyed the artwork on show and after receiving their awards were provided with a guided tour by Barry, of the impressive and thought-provoking ‘Walk of Remembrance’ exhibition.

The Pembrokeshire Foyer Project thanks all schools and the Education Directorate for supporting this competition.  We believe that we can play a pivotal role in early prevention, through engaging young learners in collaborative work to understand the social and economic factors that lead to homelessness.
