We are thrilled that a pupil from our school has been chosen as the winner of the national ‘Recognition Express Road Safety Week’ competition! She is one of 12 winners who has been selected from around the UK. Her poster design has been made into a full-size banner and is now displayed outside the school.
She also received a very special trophy and drawstring bags for every child at St Mary’s.
Road Safety Week 2018
Be Bike Smart
During Road Safety Week each class was asked to fill in the Bike Smart poster with good safety messages for cyclists. Wearing a helmet was a top choice, along with checking your lights and brakes work!
After a special visit from John Rowland at Safer Roads Humber, everyone seemed to like the idea of wearing a helmet to protect their head! This was enforced with a demonstration by John with eggs in helmets.
Pupils got the chance to watch CCTV footage of accidents caused whilst using a mobile phone ..and not paying attention! This was very humorous in places ...although it carried a strong message. John was very impressed by our Junior Travel Ambassadors and the fact that we have a great Road Safety board
