Portsmouth’s Parent and Carer Board now has a brand new logo – with a little help from Highbury College student Dan Lucas.

The Level 3 IT student came up with the winning design, which is already being used on all the Board’s communications and publicity, including their website.

As an extra bonus, he’s now been presented with a certificate marking his achievement, as well as £30 worth of High Street vouchers.

“We were very impressed with the quality of the logo designs by the Highbury students and it was a tough choice but we chose Dan’s design and we’d like to thank him and the rest of the students for all their hard work,” said Parent and Carer Board Chair Karen Sprake.

Highbury’s Sector Lead for Computing Nadim Bakhshov added that it’s really good for students to get involved in collaborative projects such as this and he and his team welcomed the opportunity.

Dan, who’s planning to study Computer Science at university or take up an Apprenticeship, was delighted with his award – he’s yet to decide how to spend his winnings.

The Board was set up in 2010 as part of Portsmouth City Council’s commitment to developing the way parents and carers can be involved in shaping the services available to families within the City.

It’s made up of 15 members, representing the many different needs of families that use the services provided, and is aimed at bridging the gap between services and service users. Their work has been recognised as a valuable tool when it comes to making decisions that affect children and young people.
