Pegasus Bay school students took advantage of UN Global Road
Safety Week last week to display their brightest and most colourful clothing
during a day dedicated to road safety.
Around 110 students from Year 5 and 6 listened to talks from
Council Road Safety Co-ordinator Kathy Graham and Christchurch Police Senior
Constable Aaron Campbell about staying safe on the roads.
Organised by teacher Megan McFarland, the talks were an opportunity
to highlight some of the key messages around ‘looking right, left and right
again’ when crossing the road, wearing cycle helmets correctly, safe crossing
at roundabouts and looking out for each other when near roads.
“It was great to hear the children knew many of the road
safety messages already and they were able to put them into practice with a
practical lesson later in the day", Kathy says.
“Children are our most vulnerable road users and it is great
to see schools taking the opportunity to inform and inspire them to engage with
road safety education.”
“We're keen to help out whenever we can to assist schools
with road safety messaging and welcome any enquiries regarding this.”
