This year’s Health Lifestyle Competition, open to all Dudley primary and secondary schools focussed on Staying Cyber-safe.  Students were asked to design a poster using a range of mediums from crayons and pens to online design tools that focussed on the importance of E-Safety.  The competition is funded by Dudley Healthy Schools Public Health Programme in partnership with Safe and Sound (Dudley's Community safety Partnership), Dudley Grid for Learning and Dudley Schools Anti-Bullying Pledge Scheme. 
Pedmore students were shown videos from SIT Safer Internet Day which highlighted cyber bullying to give them important information and inspiration for their posters.
Mr Brain Patterson, Chair of Dudley Association of Governing Bodies said, “All of Dudley schools secondary and primary were included in the competition so four being chosen (from Pedmore) out of the final 22 is brilliant”.
The three other finalists were:-
Sana Ambreen
Syrah Nadeem
Sabeela Nassar
