Crosshill Primary Schools Junior Road Safety Officers raise awareness of Road Safety

Junior Road Safety Officers at Crosshill Primary School have been very busy raising funds whilst raising awareness of the importance of Road Safety with their recent “Winter Warners” event.

               

The successful event included insightful input from pupils and staff and was attended by PC Porter who gave a talk on cycling and driving in bad weather. Kevin McGhee and Linda Robin from Ayrshire Roads Alliance were on hand to highlight the Ayrshire Roads Alliance website and our Gritter Tracking system which went live in November 2018.

              

Finally parents and pupils got together to enjoy some tea and coffee and fantastic home made cakes. Mrs Dempsey, Junior Road Safety Officer co-ordinator thanked everyone who supported the ‘Winter Warners’ event, adding that “hopefully by working together we can make our local community a safer place to walk, cycle, horse ride and drive”

                

Ms Rigg, Headteacher at Crosshill Primary School said “I am delighted with the work our Junior Road Safety Officers, led by Mrs Dempsy, are doing to involve our community in raising awareness of road safety.  Along with our Rights Respecting School committee our Junior Road Safety Officers are involving the whole school in a ‘Slow Down’ campaign highlighting the importance of drivers slowing down in the village of Crosshill to keep our community safe from road accidents”
