Thousands sign up for Telegraph initiative

More than 80,000 pupils in schools across Northern Ireland have signed up to take part in a project run by the Belfast Telegraph and Sunday Life.

The Building for the Future initiative is the biggest ever scheme for primary schools in the province, with almost 450 schools already taking part.

Tokens are currently being printed in the Telegraph, and each school needs to collect just 30 per pupil to be awarded a new television, and if they collect 50 tokens per pupil, they will also receive a video recorder.

Any school that enters the project section of the initiative – where the pupils describe their favourite building – is also in with a chance of a share in development grants worth £90,000.

The overall winning school will receive £30,000 to spend as it wishes, and 10 other schools will receive up to £10,000 each.

The winning projects will be displayed in W5 – whowhatwherewhenwhy – the interactive discovery centre at the Odyssey complex in Belfast.
