Award is champion!
at Long Sutton Primary School have proved they are top of the class when it comes to road safety.
They beat children from six other Hampshire schools to claim the junior road safety officer champion of champions title at Winchester Fire Station on July 9.
The youngsters took part in challenges, including interviewing suspects at a crime scene, completing jigsaw road sign puzzles and putting their road safety knowledge to the test.
The winners received the Champion of Champions trophy and bicycle locks and fluorescent rucksack covers, donated by Portsmouth City Council.
The school said it was a ‘brilliant’ event, which reflected the true value of junior road safety officers.
Since attending the road safety event, the school has held an assembly about road safety, updated its website and promoted road safety even more widely.
Donna Smith, Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service’s education adviser, said junior road safety officers have an important role as they carry key safety messages to their friends and family. “It has been a fantastic day for the children, who have all worked really hard,” she added.
