Road Safety Awareness

29 November 2019 | Tagged: Junior School

High School of Glasgow pupils come out on top for Road Safety! 

Four High School of Glasgow Junior pupils receive accolades in the East Dunbartonshire Council Road Safety Calendar Competition.

Cameron MacCulloch from Bearsden was the proud winner of the Junior 1 group for his drawing, and Nina Robeson from Killearn placed second in the Junior 6 group.

During Scotland's annual Road Safety Awareness Week, the Junior School ran new road safety initiatives to keep the roads around school safe. Pupils took to the streets to make sure cars were parking sensibly around the school gates, and that pupils walking to school were wearing their hi-vis vests. Whilst indoors, pupils took part in themed lessons including road safety art classes and a traffic light themed lunchbox challenge.

Junior School has a voluntary Road Safety Committee who organised awareness initiatives for pupils and parents throughout the week. The team created posters for the school front gates stating 'please don't be a fool, don't park at our school', and invited our lollipop man, Pat, to speak to pupils about the importance of road safety.

Road Safety Convener and Junior 1 teacher Isma Rashid said "Educating pupils about staying safe on the roads and parents about keeping our roads safe especially around our school gates is vital. We have children walking to and from school so we want to be confident that they know how to stay safe and seen especially during these dark mornings and nights."
