Road safety Talk
On Wednesday 30th April a girl called Lauren came in and taught us about Road Safety. Lauren spent time with every class in the school. She taught us about the importance of wearing a seat belt and also showed us videos that could happen if we don’t. She also told us not to go on mobile phones while driving or we would get a fine of €1,000. Last weekend they caught 300 people on their mobile phones in the car before 4 o’clock. She also said to have bike lights and to wear a high visibility jacket. She also said to look around you before you cross the road. You also have to be over 150 cm to not have a booster seat. You also have to encourage people in your car to wear a seat belt. Also the weight to not have a booster seat is 5 stone and 11 pounds.
Lauren also taught different classes the Be Safe programme, the Safe Cross Code, the Seatbelt Sherif programme and the Hi Glo Silver programme.
We also got some very importance high-visibility jackets, armbands, and, hats. We got some rulers, toppers, and, pencils too.
