The number of road-related deaths among children aged 5–7 is small. However, a significant number are seriously injured and this is the perfect age to establish good road safety habits, which will stand children in good stead as they grow up because fatalities and injuries rise in the 12–17 age group. Road Safety is the key theme for our School Council this term and they shall be doing their best to raise everyone’s awareness as we approach National Road Safety Week running from Monday 20 November. A School Council Road Safety Poster competition will be launched next week and they are hoping to receive lots of entries. Winning designs will be reproduced and displayed on Hill Street. We are sure you will agree that there is a need for all those involved with children to teach clear road safety messages effectively and consistently, working together to help children understand and manage risk.
