I hope you have all had a fantastic Easter and are now busy planning how you are going to promote our next topic, Pedestrian Safety. Don’t forget to update your notice board so that it is clear to everyone in school what theme it represents.
Thank you to all of you have already completed the first three Activity Record Sheets. You have produced some amazing work so far which I have really enjoyed reading about.
Remember you only need return one record sheet per school so work together and save yourselves some time.
If you have not yet completed sheet 1, 2 and 3 please try and cover our next topic during this term and don’t forget to return it to me. Your school office can do this through the school’s post to County Hall so you don’t need a stamp.
Have fun with Pedestrian Safety and remember to talk to your Road Safety Tutor when they come into school as they will be able to offer you lots of useful advise about this topic.
Road Safety Officer
The Junior Road Safety Officer scheme is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, during which time it has recruited more than 10,000 youngsters to the scheme.
A series of celebratory open evenings were held recently, which many of you attended to learn about your role, and help us celebrate the scheme’s 25th birthday.
Lesley Pendleton, county council cabinet member for environment and transport, said: “This is a fantastic scheme and the fact it is still going strong after 25 years is testament to this.
“Road safety is obviously incredibly important. What this initiative does is make learning about it fun, as well as giving the JRSOs the opportunity to develop their leadership and creative skills.
“I would like to thank all JRSOs, past and present, for helping to spread these important messages to their peers.”
I would like to say that it was lovely to meet so many of you over the four eveings and I am very much looking forward to working with you all during this year.
