Lessons in road safety
Despite the freezing weather conditions, the Junior School Council dressed in high visibility jackets to go on duty at the end of the school day to be “on patrol” and place tickets on any cars that had a parked unsafely.
Along with Cheryl Sandford (the Connect Communities Co-ordinator from Blackburn) and several Community Police Officers, the School Council were full of enthusiasm to keep our school a safe place. Only a few tickets were issued but the children were keen to talk to passing parents and children and ensure that they would put their seatbelts on safely!
Congratulations must go to Willa in Year 4 whose safety design was chosen to be added to the parking tickets. The council are hoping that this maybe a regular activity.
Thank you to the Blackburn Community Officers for spending time with our children and teaching them such a valuable lesson.
