A SUPERHERO schoolboy from Glasgow has come up with a smart way to keep fellow pupils safe when classes resume after the summer break.

When Lucca Zonfrillo heard his mum’s company was making Covid-19 precautionary signs for businesses, he suggested adapting the idea for schools.

The result – superhero-themed ‘Sani Stations’ with posters and stickers – will now be in place in 300 schools across the city from next month.

Lucca’s mum, Cora, explained: “We are a sign and compliance manufacturer for construction site safety and many of our clients were asking us to manufacture branded Covid-19 material to help establish essential measures for staff returning to work.

“My son came up with the idea of modifying what we were doing to suit kids.”

During lockdown, Cora’s company - Aroc Compliance – worked with Glasgow City Council and Falkirk Council to donate the kids’ packs and materials to local hub schools.

“We got a list of the schools looking after vulnerable children and those whose parents are keyworkers,” she added. “We developed a superhero theme that the kids could relate to and interact with, which we then designed and manufactured in our factory in Falkirk.

“We distributed the packs to around 30 hubs and it was so successful, Glasgow City Council has now decided to use them in schools after the summer break.”

Cora added: “For the last few weeks, we have been installing themed sanitising stations, stickers, posters and signs in preparation for the schools reopening on August 11.”

Proud mum Cora believes her nine-year-old son deserves a pat on the back for his hard work in helping the project come to fruition.

“Lucca was an amazing driver to get this project over the line – he spent weeks filling, taping and labelling boxes, cutting out stickers, counting out posters and personally helped to deliver the packs,” she said.

“He’s been a powerhouse, ensuring kids in the community are protected.”

Nine-year-old Lucca, who is a pupil at Muiredge Primary, said: “I just wanted us to help kids that weren’t allowed to stay at home to be safe.”
