Local school pupils’ creativity valued and rewarded

Porthaven looked to the pupils of a local primary school, Robertswood School, to solve the problem of what to call this new home in Chalfont St. Peter.

A competition was set, and the pupils in Key Stage 2 enthusiastically took part. With so many interesting entries to choose from, the impressed Porthaven senior management team of John Storey, Marlyn MacDougall and Sean Kime had a tough time settling on the name. But from a shortlist of three, one stood out – ‘Woodland Manor’ was chosen as the name for the new care home as you can see above.

The winning entry was submitted by Hettie, whose suggestion will now be widely publicised as the Porthaven Care Group prepares to create awareness of this, its newest location and care option for those in the local community. Hettie was awarded a £50 Toys ‘r’ Us voucher, just in time for Christmas.

The two lucky runners-up, George and Harvey, were awarded a £25 gift voucher each. Robertswood School was also given £100 worth of book tokens as thanks from Porthaven for coordinating the challenge with their pupils.

Sean Kime, Commercial Director for Porthaven commented: “Well done Hettie and Robertswood! At Porthaven, we always look to the heart of the communities that we serve. Families are important to all of us and it is fantastic for us to be involved with Robertswood School in this way, and we hope that this relationship will continue into the future.”
