Pupils demand safety on roads
PUPILS from Delft marched around the streets of their neighbourhood demanding to be safe on the roads as pedestrians on their way to school.
It also marked International Walk to School Day, to bring awareness to drivers and demand they do their part to keep children safe. International Walk To School Day is an annual global event started in 1999, designed to promote safety for children walking to school.
Childsafe South Africa joined forces with Kairos Primary School in Delft to continue its awareness campaign of keeping child pedestrians safe on the road.
Around 700 Grade R, Grade 3 and Grade 7 learners marched around the streets of Delft, bearing placards and posters calling for drivers and other road users to play their part in keeping children safe. Later, Grade 7 learners installed 10 silhouettes on the fence of the school, representing children killed on the streets in 2017.
Childsafe South Africa’s participation in the day forms part of the childsafety advocacy organisation’s Walk this Way programme. |
