Be Safe. Be Seen.
It’s a familiar message, but still one that gets overlooked by children (and adults!).
Many of our Junior Road Safety Officers (JRSOs) have been busy making sure that it’s not overlooked in their school or community.
One school that have been especially active on this topic is Gislingham CEVCP School and especially Eamon, Iris, Thomas, Neve, James and Ellie.
The pupils there have been putting their JRSO prizes to good use, running poster competitions. Other activities by this enthusiastic team include their JRSOs contributing to the school newsletter and website and getting an article published in ‘The Messenger’ the local Parish Magazine, a great achievement and brilliant way of sharing this important message within their community.
Other JRSO schools’ activities include taking part in non-uniform ‘Brightness Days’ where pupils (and staff) dress up in their most colourful, reflective and fluorescent clothing!
We have JRSO schools that have managed to get some of their posters up on noticeboards in supermarkets, local shops and village noticeboards. They have also made sure they remind cyclists the importance of working lights and clean reflectors and even given a mention to horse riders and pet owners (there are some great reflective collars and dog coats about!)
So once more our Suffolk JRSOs are doing a great job brightening up their communities and keeping everyone safe.
