Youngsters are on the ball when it comes to tackling car crime.

Pupils at Bramley St Peter’s Primary have designed colourful car stickers to help reduce vehicle crime in their community.

And they have even had extra support from Leeds Rhinos mascot Ronnie the Rhino to help tackle the issue.

Children are now hoping that their designs will be created and handed out to parents and residents across Bramley to deter thieves.

Teacher Lesley Dixon-Dawson said: “ We decided to look on the internet about some of the biggest issues in Bramley and we found a police report and theft from parked cars.

“The children decided that they wanted to look at a local issue and we had a local PCSO visit the children to talk about vehicle crime.

“One of their ideas was to generate some stickers to put in cars in the area.

“Pupils’ voices are very important and this is a great way to help them learn lots of real life skills.

“It is also about decision making as well as being aware of what the main issues are in the community.”

Their project is part of the Go-Givers Make a Difference Challenge were children are encouraged to learn about, and help solve, community problems.

Schools across the city have shown their support for the scheme with a number of initiatives.

Rawdon- based Est Display Ltd are set to create their designs which could be distributed at a Leeds Rhinos match next month.

Ms Dixon-Dawson added: “The children are really excited about this and it is just a great experience for them.”
