Keira, Harriet and Vera from Year 5 are our newly appointed JRSOs. The girls attended the JRSO Conference online a few weeks ago, supported by Mrs Gundry. Here is their first report:
Yesterday, we attended a virtual training session with other JRSOs from other schools. There were lots of useful videos and facts but there were also fun games and quizzes too. The most important facts were: the older you get the more likely you are to be injured in a road accident. Also that a road accident is usually caused by lots of little things and finally, that wearing a helmet on a bike or scooter could save your life. We hope we will be very good JRSOs and we will help you and others stay safe on the road as best as we can.
Last year’s JRSOs were Chloe and Ava. This was their review of their year as JRSOs:
Hello! We are the JRSOs and that stands for Junior Road Safety Officers. Our job in the school is to explain the safety of being on the road and around cars. We help everyone in our school know the importance of the road and how to be safe. Throughout the year we have run a workshop with Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6. We have also run a competition for Year 2 and 3 to see who can design the best poster for ‘Crossing the Road Sense’. We chose two winners and their posters were displayed around school. Our aim is to leave the school with everyone from Y2 upwards knowing all about road safety and how to make safe choices.
