It was like Christmas at Victoria Park Primary school when we received our safety sign package through the Connecting School grant. What a valuable resource! We have used the signs to set up a realistic environment for the children to learn essential road safety skills through role play.
It was very rewarding to hear the students talk about their learning...
“We have to stop, look and listen before we cross the road and we should use a crosswalk or lights if they are close.”
“Now I know how important it is to wait until the cars stop before I step onto the crosswalk, because not all drivers pay attention.”
“We have to listen really carefully just in case a car comes around the corner, so we shouldn’t have our earphones in with the music really loud.”
We also look forward to the installation of the Bike Repair Station early next term. This will be conveniently located near our bike racks. Senior students will be trained in the correct use of the station and will assist the younger students when checking tyre pressure. We are confident that the bike repair station will encourage more students to ride their bikes to school.
A big thank you to the team at Your Move for providing us with opportunities to obtain such valuable resources for our school!
