Award is cham­pion!

Aldershot News & Mail - - SCHOOLS -

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.

Pupils at Long Sut­ton Church of Eng­land Pri­mary School cel­e­brate be­ing crowned ju­nior road safety of­fi­cer cham­pion of cham­pi­ons.
